About Creed Foodservice

Creed Foodservice are one of the UK's leading independently-owned foodservice wholesalers, specialising in a comprehensive range of multi-temperature products and services to caterers throughout the country.

The business was formed in 1972 and now operates three sites across the UK.

The company prides itself in providing a great service through their people, and achieves this through their philosophy: believe in more, thinking more, doing more and being more than just a food service provider.

Employee engagement is important to Creed Foodservice. This year has seen a focus on management visibility and involvement with employees. This has led to director breakfasts, where the board cook and serve breakfast for drivers and night starting service at 4.00am for the drivers and night teams.

The company is led by CEO Chris Creed, who constantly looks for innovation in the company, attending and encouraging others to attend external learning, community or industry-relevant events to understand how they can utilise new skills.
