Hannah Food Service has grown into one of the largest Northwest Independent Food Service companies and now operates as a national wholesale food distribution business. The original Family operation was founded in 1977 as R Hannah & Sons servicing “Fast Food and Chip Shops” in Merseyside and West Lancashire with a range of frozen foods and own brand sausages.

The ethos of “great customer service quality and value” ensured that the business continued to grow with expansion of our “Frozen Food Division” and the opportunity to expand into other “Food Service” markets came as the company naturally diversified into the food Wholesale, Education, Healthcare, Hotel and Leisure industries. The foundation of Hannah Food Service was further cemented by the expansion of the business and move to a £3m, purpose built custom premises with integrated cold store and chiller in 2008, enabling us to increase our stock and range across frozen, ambient, chilled, and non-food categories. Increasing demand from our customers for a “one stop shop” drove the development of partnerships with local artisan fresh producers and we now offer specialty products including fresh butchery meats, (Inc. British Red Tractor) as well as fruit and vegetables from regional growers.

Investment has continued to maintain and develop our client-driven service, with plans in the pipeline for further growth to facilitate our expansion nationally. Our strategy is to enhance our service further, investing in our people and recruiting market sector specialists in the food service industry, to add a depth of knowledge to support our customers across all hospitality and food sectors with an aim to be a “market leader” in our industry.
