Brian McQuaid, Sales Director of Dohertys, said, “The enormous interest in the range the Central Foods’ sales team has already generated shows we made the right decision appointing them as our exclusive UK foodservice distributor. We know they offer more routes to market than anyone else and their reputation for professionalism, quality and integrity matches our own. They really are making our life easier!”
Central Foods Managing Director, Gordon Lauder, added: “We have been supplying caterers and wholesalers with gluten-free products since 2009 – when the market was only just beginning to take off. We are working with Coeliac UK to heighten awareness of supplying gluten-free options amongst caterers and how it can benefit their business with repeat and loyal custom. Dohertys is an ideal partner for us to work with, being quality leaders in their sector and with the same values as ourselves. We are delighted to represent them and look forward to developing the market together even further.”
