Rectory Foods Expands in Eastern Europe

Rectory Foods, the UK-based supplier of poultry, red meat, fruit and vegetables and food ingredients to the food service, wholesale, food manufacturing and retail sectors, has expanded its business in Eastern Europe with the opening of a facility in Lithuania. Established through its UAB Baltreka subsidiary, the new facility will be used to source, store and distribute meat and other ingredients to Baltic countries, and complies with BRC standards.

Eastern Europe has become a significant element of Rectory Foods’ operation since 2003 and now accounts for about 10% of sales. “Eastern Europe has become an important part of our business and it made sense for us to set up a base there,” explains Charles Woolley, chief executive and founder of Rectory Foods. “Some of the biggest food manufacturers and producers in Europe are already among our customers and we are looking to work with companies to source product to meet their individual needs and quantities.”

Baltreka’s main areas of focus are currently poultry cuts, chicken breast fillets, convenience foods, as well as beef and pork products for manufacturing and wholesale, but there are plans to enter the retail market later in the year.
