Global Foods


The business was started by the current directors’ uncle from a corner shop in 1969. The current business was incorporated in 1982 and was moved to bigger premises. The business stayed there for five years and then moved to its current premises to Penarth Road. In the last few years, the third generation of the family has joined the company and this has helped the business to go from strength to strength. Global Foods is currently the largest company on this year’s Fast Growth 50 list with a turnover, in 2009, of £89 million.

Success Factor

Global Foods Ltd strives to be a customer focused organization by dedicating their total staff strength towards customer service efficiency and customer satisfaction, and thus progressing towards long-term growth. The demand and popularity of Asian, Oriental, Caribbean and African food products have increased tremendously in the last decades and such ingredients have become staples in many UK kitchens. Global Foods Ltd is committed to supplying and distributing to Asian, Caribbean and African international grocery stores, food service providers and wholesalers high quality authentic products regularly used in kitchens for preparing Oriental, Asian, Caribbean and African style meals.

The Future

The directors will keep growing the business and expand their operations through opening further branches in England.
