Dunsters Farm to join Caterforce


Foodservice wholesaler Dunsters Farm has joined buying group Caterforce as its latest member, bringing its total membership to nine following the recent addition of Hyperama.

Dunsters has been in business since 1963 and is an independent supplier of chilled and ambient foods, supplying schools, hospitals, care homes, and hospitality outlets across the North from their purpose-built site in Bury, Greater Manchester.

Joining in July, Caterforce managing director Gary Mullineux believes Dunsters is a perfect addition to its membership: “Forward-thinking and progressive, Dunsters Farm combines a modern business with traditional family values and its ambitious plans for growth align perfectly with ours. We’re delighted the Dunsters Farm team has chosen Caterforce to support it in its next phase of development.”
