Caterforce announce another new member

Caterforce is overjoyed to announce another new member for the group, taking its foodservice wholesale membership total to 9.

Dunsters Farm will join the group on 1 July 2021 and bring with them a wealth of experience in local foodservice. The third-generation, family-run wholesaler has been trading since 1963 as an independent supplier of chilled and ambient foods, supplying schools, hospitals, care homes, and hospitality outlets across the North from their purpose-built site in Bury, Greater Manchester.

“As a well-established family-run business, Dunsters Farm is a perfect addition to our membership,” said Gary Mullineux, Caterforce Managing Director.

“Forward-thinking and progressive, Dunsters Farm combines a modern business with traditional family values and its ambitious plans for growth align perfectly with ours. We’re delighted the Dunsters Farm team has chosen Caterforce to support it in its next phase of development.”

Hannah Barlow, Managing Director, Dunsters Farm, said: “Caterforce has an excellent knowledge of the market and we’re proud to be joining forces with such a well-respected buying group.

“Just like us, the group has ambitious growth targets and we are delighted to be joining members who all exhibit best practice in our industry. We are keen to utilise Caterforce’s buying expertise to strengthen our position and increase the range we offer our customers, including hundreds of key frozen lines which has been one of our priorities for 2021.”

Stephen Carr, Chairman, Caterforce said: “At Caterforce, we are firmly focussed on how we can best support our foodservice members’ recovery post-pandemic. We are delighted that we can support Dunsters Farm to achieve a strategic priority with our frozen range, and we’re looking forward to supporting their future growth.”
