Samworth Brothers, the family-owned British food group, has launched a new food-to-go business and delivery service – Fresh Food For Now Company. The new venture marks the evolution of the existing Ginsters van operation into a fresh new business, offering vendors a complete food-to-go solution with an extended range of brands and products to cater for the on-the-go consumer.

Fresh Food For Now Company will operate from 16 nationwide sales offices and will provide retailers with extensive category management expertise and flexible ordering systems. To further support retailers, Fresh Food For Now Company will also be launching a new website, offering essential advice and support for retailers and providing valuable market and customer insight. Soon, customers will also be able to use the website to submit orders in a bid to further simplify the ordering process.

Anthony Johnson, managing director of Fresh Food For Now Company, says: “Our new offering is designed to make a difference at the fixture every day. We pay special attention to evolving trends, ensuring we are able to supply a range of products that our retailers can sell and that consumers will love. We’re looking forward to providing personal and expert help for every customer – large or small. Our new flexible ordering system and in-store merchandising service will cater to the needs of all retailers, and ensure we are getting the right products in the right stores.”
