Harlech Foodservice will join the Country Range buying group in April, with the Welsh wholesaler having recently celebrated its 50th year in business.
Founded in 1972 by Colin and Gill Foskett, the couple’s children Jonathan, Andrew and Laura, now continue to run the company in the family’s name.
The Country Range Group also recently welcomed Brook Street Foodservice into its membership following the departures of Harvest Fine Foods and Thomas Ridley Foodservice after they were both bought out by Bidcorp.
Country Range Group chief executive Martin Ward, said: “It’s the second highly-successful, independent, family-run foodservice wholesaler to join our Group in the last four weeks so 2023 is shaping up to be another hugely exciting and hopefully record-breaking year. Just like Brook Street Foodservice, Harlech Foodservice are a great fit for our Group and share so many of our values so we’re over the moon to welcome David and his incredible team.”
David Cattrall, managing director of Harlech Foodservice, added: “Over the last few years, we’ve been extremely impressed with the Country Range Group when it comes to their product portfolio, special events, marketing campaigns and their growing buying power so it’s with great pleasure that we join them in April. We look forward to working closely with Martin and his team, plus the other independent members, to help drive further growth for our business and the Country Range Group as a whole.”
