SME News is pleased to announce the winners of their annual Northern Enterprise Award and Clegg’s Chilled Food Service have been award Best Chilled Food Distributor 2020
Longridge based Clegg’s Chilled Food Service has triumphed against bigger rivals to win this award.
Clegg’s employs many local staff at their premises in Longridge, formerly specialised in cheese but have expanded into other areas to supply a wide range of chilled and ambient food products to various types of customers, these including public sector, contract caterers, wholesalers, sandwich shops and delicatessens, restaurants, hotels, sandwich producers and bakeries.
The company is very proud to win this award and General Manager Paul Masterson, said the recognition was a real tribute to the hard work of all the staff within the company.
He said: “Over the past 12 months Clegg’s have maintained and retained several key contracts to supply chilled and ambient foods to the National Health Service, universities and education establishments but the Covid-19 pandemic has also forced into finding other sources of income and we now sell to the public through an online shop www.cleggschilledfoodsevice.co.uk We are now offering free delivery for orders over £30 or collection from our factory. Doing this made us have to look at some different products, from those which we normally sell. We’ve had to source canned retail items, milk, bread, eggs, sausages along with fruit and vegetables.
This has been very successful and when some of our public sector customers found out about the new products they have asked us to supply them with food boxes for the vulnerable families.”
