Birchall Foodservice

Family-run wholesaler Birchall Foodservice has scooped three major trophies at a prestigious awards night.

Birchall Foodservice was named Family Business of Year and Employer of the Year, as well as winning the Customer Service award, at the Red Rose Business Awards held at Blackpool Winter Gardens.

The hat-trick of awards follows on from the company’s success at the same event last year when they were named Employer of the Year 2016.

Company managing director Justin Birchall said: “We’re over the moon to have retained our Employer of the Year title, as well as winning the two other categories that we entered this year.

“We feel honoured and humbled that our hard work and dedication to both our customers and our employees has been recognised and rewarded, and want to thank each and every member of the team for their continued support.”

Comments on Birchall’s Family Employer of the Year Award judges said: “The business lives and breathes family values and all staff are supported in an extended family environment.”

The fourth generation family business, based in Burnley, Lancashire, is also the current holder of the Federation of Wholesale Distributors Gold Medal for Wholesale Service to Caterers.

The company, which employs 120 people, has depots in Burnley, Wrexham, Durham, Sheffield and Stoke-on-Trent.
