A new wholesale foodservice wholesaler launched in the South West this month with a pledge to be “passionate about produce and serious about service”.
Two Brothers Foods is the new venture from Gavin Roberts (pictured) of Kernow Sausages, an enterprising Cornish butcher who made his name creating premium sausages based on family recipes.
Kernow Sausages launched in 2007 and are now used by the region’s top chefs, who recognised a special combination of quality, provenance and family values.
In 2014, Roberts purchased Vealls, a food wholesaler based in Newquay, so that he could grow his business. The company was originally founded in 1964 by brothers Ron and John Veall, who increased turnover to more than £1m, supplying more than 200 businesses in the South West with a range of chilled, ambient and frozen foods.
Roberts is now relaunching the company as Two Brothers Foods – a nod to the former owners – with a reinvigorated offer designed to appeal to professional kitchens across the South West and beyond.
Gavin explains the ethos behind Two Brothers Foods: “Our aim at Two Brothers Foods is to deliver the finest, freshest seasonal foods and niche products – picked, prepped, packed and delivered with great service standards to the kitchen doors of chefs across the West Country.”
He added: “We have grown a supply network of like-minded food lovers who share our passion for great food, great products and great service. The result is a range of key kitchen staples, including quality fresh meats and poultry, deli, dairy and frozen produce. We keep an eye on the latest consumer trends, testing new ranges to help busy chefs create inspired menus which meet the changing demands of their customers, their business and their budget. We aim to set a new industry standard in terms of provenance, quality and consistency.”
