Zest Food Partners has been launched to support brand owners and deliver growth in the foodservice market.
Nick Redford, former managing director of Caterforce and founding partner of Arete Procurement Solutions, has joined forces with a team of six foodservice experts to launch the business. These include Warren Hamer (founding partner of Arete Procurement Solutions and previously Sodexo’s global category director for protein), and Kelly Burke (former foodservice customer manager at The Silver Spoon Company).
Zest Food Partners will work with brand owners to understand their business and help develop and execute successful foodservice strategies. As a strategic partner, they will identify opportunities to get their products into the right channels and in front of the right people.
Nick Redford, procurement director of Zest Food Partners, said: “As the foodservice industry starts its journey on the road to recovery, it is the perfect time for brands to review and develop foodservice strategies and the Zest team are here to support with that.
“Our collaborative approach means brands can get the expertise and input of our strategy, sales, marketing, and procurement experts, without a huge investment or increasing head count. In the current climate, we believe this is the most cost-effective way for businesses to rebuild, accelerate and achieve their foodservice growth targets.”
Kelly Burke, commercial director at Zest Food Partners, added: “We’re committed to helping brands grow and are confident we have the knowledge, networks and the team to deliver great results for our clients.”
