Cherry on the cake for specialist baker

A quarter of a century of supplying a leading food wholesalers with bread has been topped for specialist baker Butt Foods after the company was awarded the title of “Desserts and Bakery Supplier of the Year” at the Brakes Supplier Conference.

The Nottingham-based company, which supplies flatbread, naans, sub rolls and other speciality breads to the food service sector, received the award from Brakes Group for a range of reasons, including 100% level of supply, stock and logistics innovation, market leading insight and new product development, as well as being praised for having a helpful team.

Butt Foods managing director David Williams said: “Pardon the pun, but it really was the cherry on the cake to receive the award from Brakes, a wholesale company that we have had links with for almost the entire history of Butt Foods and who source from more than 2,000 suppliers.

“Our company was founded in 1990, and the following year began supplying naan breads to Brakes – dealing with the original founding Brake family. The business relationship has continued since then, as both companies have developed, and we are thrilled to have been named the Desserts and Bakery Supplier of the Year at the Brakes Supplier Conference”.

Brakes is the UK’s biggest food distributor, and also supplies to Ireland, France and Sweden. The group sources and supplies a range of more than 50,000 fresh, ambient, chilled and frozen foods, including more than 4,000 own-brand products and a wide range of non-foods.

Butt Foods is one of more than 2,000 suppliers from around the world that the group deals with.
