Bidfood takes over seven-depot Elite Fine Foods

Elite Fine Foods has been acquired by Bidfood.

The Brighton-based wholesaler, which has seven depots in England and Wales, operates a next-day service, six days a week, delivering to more than 2,000 customers.

Elite Fine Foods will retain its name and staff – the same situation that applies to Bidfood’s other independent wholesalers: Caterfood, of Paignton, Devon; South Lincs Foodservice, in Sutterton, Boston; and Cimandis in the Channel Islands.

Bidfood CEO Andrew Selley said: “Operated by a strong and dynamic management team, Elite Fine Foods has unrivalled market place knowledge, service and a range of over 6,500 products.

“This includes a comprehensive selection of fine foods, such as excellent local and imported speciality cheeses. It also offers its own butchery and fresh meat service along with a fantastic range of fresh fish.

“This sits well within our decentralised model, where we can use our financial and strategic strength alongside Elite’s local expertise to offer customers the service and range they are looking for.”

Elite Fine Foods managing director Graham Bell commented: “We’re excited to become part of the Bidfood family and look forward to working with them to leverage their support and expertise to further strengthen our market-leading service, range and proposition.”
