MDC Foods Celebrates 25 Years in the Frozen Foods Industry

Leading frozen food supplier marks key milestone and prepares for future growth

MDC 25 Years LogoMDC Foods, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of private label frozen food products, has today announced the launch of their 25th Company Anniversary celebrations.

MDC Foods was founded in April 1989 by experienced industry professionals Michael Cullinane and Michel Delbaere of Crop’s NV in Belgium, who felt that there was an opportunity to offer a fresh new approach to the UK frozen food market. Two and a half decades later and MDC Foods has certainly delivered against that aim, achieving the right balance of product diversity and security, innovation, quality, value and service to secure sustained growth and an impressive array of industry awards.

Building on its heritage of traditional frozen vegetables, MDC Foods has since ventured into new product areas and the company’s comprehensive portfolio of almost 300 product lines now also includes frozen fruit, added-value vegetables such as gratins and an extensive range of ready meals.

MDC Foods’ customer base has also grown in size and diversity over the last 25 years and the company now supplies over 54 thousand tonnes of frozen products per year to some of the UK’s largest supermarkets and manufacturers as well as a diverse range of restaurant chains and other foodservice providers.

Michael Cullinane commented: “We are very proud of how far we have come as a company and we have a lot to celebrate this year. Over the years we have built symbiotic relationships with a handful of key partners and worked closely together to cross-fertilise ideas and deliver economies of scale and new innovations to market. This approach has earned us the trust and respect of our customers, whose long-term loyalty has been our biggest and most valuable achievement.”

“We are excited to build on our accomplishments to date and, with our highly professional and experienced team in place, we are well positioned to drive the business forward and deliver continued innovation and value to our customers over the coming years.”

MDC Foods is marking the occasion with a special 25 Year Anniversary publication and a celebration event for its employees in Luton, Bedfordshire. A copy of the publication is available on request by contacting:
