DFLMacclesfield-based Direct Food Ingredients is celebrating a record breaking June, as the company achieved sales of £1.5m – its highest ever monthly turnover.

The first six months of 2016 has seen the food, nutritional and sports ingredients distributor reach a turnover of £7.6m, up 11.2 per cent from the same period last year (£6.8m), putting the business on target to hit £16m by year end (31 December).

The hardworking team rigorously strived to beat May’s impressive sales turnover of £1.4m and continued to ensure all orders, no matter the size, were fulfilled efficiently using its state-of-the-art CRM and accounts system.

Direct Food Ingredients has attributed its growth over the past six months to a number of factors; including expansion of current client business and the introduction of new product ranges within categories such as; sports nutrition, animal and pet nutrition and nutraceuticals, allowing them to keep up with client demand as well as attracting new customers from a variety of sectors.

Steve Loake, managing director at Direct Food Ingredients, said:  “To reach £1.5m in June was a fantastic achievement for both the business and our employees. Looking back, we achieved 50% more in sales last month than we did in the first year of trading back in 1995 which is incredible to see.

“Every department has worked extremely hard to meet this milestone and I am very proud of the team here at our head office in Macclesfield and also at our office in Los Angeles.”

Direct Food Ingredients’ head office is located on Waters Green in the centre of Macclesfield (Cheshire, England), the company also maintains a second base in California which launched in 2015 to expand its operation to the US.

The business is an established leader in the importation, storage and distribution of functional foods, nutritional and sports ingredients as well as vitamin and mineral premixes.
