It all begins
Fullers Foods was founded in 1876 as a family firm. We set up shop in Leeds market where the founders sold fresh fruit and vegetables to customers coming from all over Yorkshire.
First freezer store
Innovations in food
Fullers opened the very first freezer store at Leeds Market, paving the way in frozen food technology.
Diversifying our range
We began making even more food products in different categories. At the same time, we started sourcing and distributing frozen food to retailers including ASDA.
British Frozen Food Federation
Leading the way
Fullers Foods became a founding member of the British Frozen Food Federation, dedicated to promoting and protecting the frozen food industry.
Cash and carry
New ways of business
Fullers opened a Cash and carry business at Leeds Wholesale Markets, offering a new way of buying food products for local companies.
Environmentally responsible growing
Fullers Foods and Scottish Borders Produce teamed up to form a co-operative of farmers specialising in environmentally responsible growing and processing of top-quality peas for the retail frozen market.
Supplying frozen veg to more people
Fullers Foods secured a contract with ASDA to supply frozen vegetables, bringing fresh, nutritious veg to even more people.
Expanding our reach
In 2006, Fullers Foods expanded globally, sourcing products from far and wide including the Far East, to create a wide range of party foods and snacks.
Making our new home
It was time to move into a more modern space, in keeping with the innovative work Fullers does, so we moved to our current offices in Leeds city centre in 2008.
The UK’s largest own-brand suppliers
Becoming trusted partners in the UK
2012 is the year we became the largest own-label consolidator of frozen food in the UK, helping us to become one of the UK’s most trusted food distributors.
Building our technical team
Bringing in people who can make a difference
Being at the forefront of innovations in food technology is really important to us. That’s why we invested in expanding our technical team, to do industry-leading work around agronomy, supply chain, sourcing and more.
