Food businesses team up to launch new Yorkshire frozen ingredients company
Three food businesses have announced that they have joined forces to launch a new Yorkshire frozen ingredients company.
REMS Frozen Foods, headquartered in Hessle, is a collaboration between the managing directors of Troy Foods, The Tuber Group and North Star Foods.
The new company will import frozen food ingredients from around the world, specialising in Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) fruit, vegetables, spices and herbs.
As well as its head office in Hessle, the business will have a trading office in Market Harborough, and will benefit from offices in China, the USA, Eastern Europe, Spain and Egypt.
Adam Shepherd, co-founder, commented: “Having worked in the sector for the last 13 years, I believe that the frozen food ingredient supply market is ready for a shake-up.
“This collaboration between our three complementary businesses makes us ideally placed to use our expertise and resources to create a high performance, specialist business that will really meet the needs of food manufacturers, food service providers and retailers by supplying top quality products at competitive prices.
“With our extensive international raw material factory base, we will be able to source and supply a wide range of ingredients from artichokes to zucchini, for use in a vast array of products including ready meals, sausages, sauces, marinades and soups.
“Our aim is to provide a full-service offering, taking care of all aspects from the sourcing, quality control and importing of products to finance, currency exchange, purchase and customs.
“Given the added complexity of importing following Brexit changes, taking away the hassle of import issues and giving customers complete peace of mind is more important than ever.
“We plan to be established as a fully stand-alone business by the end of 2021 with a team of up to a dozen people, and to be the supplier of choice to all major UK and Irish food manufacturers. As well as serving the UK food industry, we also have plans to expand into European markets with ambitions to move further afield too.”
