    Derby-based PAK Foods joins Sugro

    Sugro UK, the member-owned buying and marketing group comprising of over 90 independent wholesalers, today (31) announced the expansion of its membership with the addition of PAK Foods.

    Established over two decades ago in Derby, PAK Foods has emerged as a prominent entity within the wholesale and retail landscape. The company operates nine own-fascia stores located in Stoke-On-Trent, Burton-on-Trent, Leicester, Derby, Nottingham, and Peterborough.

    Specialising in a diverse array of retail and foodservice products, PAK Foods caters to approximately 20,000 foodservice and retail customers. Their commitment to excellence extends to direct consumer engagement, with offerings available through both delivered wholesale and walk-in visits to their stores.

    As one of the largest independent retail chains in the UK, PAK Foods has garnered recognition for its outstanding contributions to the industry. In 2005, the company was honoured with the prestigious East Midlands Best Retail award. PAK FOODS membership adds a new dynamic to the group via its diverse customer base and further enhances Sugro’s presence in the retail and food service sectors.

    Mohammed Arfhan, Director of PAK Foods said, “Over the past five years, we have invested heavily in opening new outlets and targeting new markets. Joining Sugro will enable us to deal directly with our supply chain partners. This will significantly enhance our buying power, allowing us to offer our customers more competitive pricing and a wider range of products.”

    Sugro Business Development Manager, Shruti Senapati said, “The success of PAK Foods, a family-owned and operated business, has been based on the company’s dedication and excellence in providing a high standard of customer service to its diverse range of customers. We are absolutely delighted to welcome PAK FOODS as a member of our growing Sugro family and to work closely with them to strategically grow their business.”
