Braehead Foods has formally announced its partnership with Reynolds Catering Supplies, following the decision of Braehead’s former managing director Craig Stevenson to sell his stake in the business.
Braehead Foods is based in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, and has been supplying chefs across the UK with ingredients for 30 years, while Reynolds Catering Supplies is based Waltham Cross, Herts, and is a national fresh produce wholesaler to the foodservice industry.
The new arrangement sees Stevenson’s older daughter Gill Rae (previously business improvement manager) take over as managing director of Braehead Foods. She commented: “It’s been an exciting year for Braehead Foods as we’ve gone into partnership with Reynolds Catering Supplies. I’m looking forward to 2024 and the opportunities that that [partnership] presents for our customer base.”
Stevenson said that the deal represents “safe hands taking on the responsibility and my legacy of Braehead Foods for years to come (next generation)”.
He added: “I’m still here and now doing what I’m told! Thank you all for the past 40+ years in the food and hospitality industry.”
