Get to know us
We are an independent, family-run business based in Hull. In the business for over 35 years, we are now one of the leading hygiene, packaging and catering suppliers in the Yorkshire and Humber region. This growth is down to our absolute commitment to our profession, believing that good housekeeping is a fundamental component of modern businesses and essential for minimising risk and employee absence – as well as managing your environmental footprint and cost base.
We pride ourselves on blending exceptional service with innovation and take a holistic view of all aspects of your hygiene, packaging and catering equipment requirements. Not only that, but we can advise you proactively on risks and opportunities you need to respond to, and take care of your ordering schedules, provide a seamless, behind the scenes supply support, letting you get on with the important job of running your business.
At the moment, many organisations are desperate to seize the opportunity the Government has given them to get up and running again following the Covid-19 lockdown, but are feeling stressed about how they are going to achieve that, given the risks presented by this pandemic. The likelihood is that this is going to result in a new way of operating which will be with us for some considerable time to come. We have full confidence that it is possible to manage this change with the right advice. We have years of knowledge and experience to take the worry off your shoulders, and the supply chain to source the things you need to implement changes, all delivered in the form of a robust strategic plan which will fully support any risk assessment you are carrying out and, ultimately, protect your business.
As members of the Socius supplier’s network, we can source the right products, cost-effectively and fast. We also belong to the Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers’ Association (CHSA) and the Food Packaging Association (FPA), keeping up to speed with the latest industry trends regarding rules, regulations, products and procedures. This means you can have absolute confidence in the advice we give on everything from ISO standards to corporate social responsibility.
So that our customers can have complete confidence in us, we have a number of key industry certifications, including the ISO 27001 cyber security.
We take our role as a local business and employer very seriously indeed, and belong to various regeneration and business support organisations including the FEO Growth Group and FEO Step Change Programme. As well as helping to mentor our young entrepreneurs, we regularly take on apprentices, training them up to realise their potential within our company. In 2019, we collaborated with Hull’s Emmaus charity to offer work experience placements to companions, living at the Orchard, many of whom were previously homeless. Our aim and desire to build their self-esteem, confidence both in themselves and in our team, all part of getting them with a route back into earning a living.
