Q Catering is aiming to achieve an annual turnover of £20m by 2030, with recently appointed managing director Steve Clarke stating his aim for the company to now be on the front foot in response to market challenges.
The Sittingbourne-based foodservice wholesaler appointed Clark last Septemebr after buying a substantial shareholding in the Fairway Foodservice member’s business.
The independently run company and team there are using Clarke’s industry knowledge, having spent more than 25 years at Kent Frozen Foods as purchasing & marketing director. He also holds a directorship at Produced in Kent.

Steve Clarke comments: “There are exciting times ahead for Q Catering. I’m thrilled to be working with the team to put systems in place which will help grow and take the business to the next level. The company already has solid roots in the wholesale industry across Kent and the South East, and we are committed to continue expanding our range of high-quality products for hospitality and foodservice businesses this year.
“We’re also here to support businesses from a place of authority and expertise so they can keep up to date with the latest innovative products, trends and shifts in the industry. The ongoing HFSS regulations is both one of the biggest challenges and opportunities for the industry at the moment. We have plans to increase our healthy ingredient options and plant-based ranges to help caterers stay one step ahead.
“I have a strong vision for the company and believe Q Catering can be a leader in the industry. We are driven to provide high-quality products, advice, and customer service at all times, and that’s something that will never change.” Clarke concludes.
