KK Fine Foods Plc
Managing Director: Leyla Edwards
Since starting KK Fine Foods at my kitchen table over 20 years ago we've come a very long way and we're fortunate that Gardners have been with us from almost the beginning.
From producing just 250 meals a week, with Gardners support, KK Fine Foods is now a public limited company producing approximately 70,000 meals a day, with a product range of 480 dishes and employing 180 members of staff. We've won numerous awards including Welsh Company of the Year in 2008, which is one of our proudest achievements.
Gardners Corporate Division have been excellent in helping us secure Welsh Assembly Government grants enabling us to construct our own purpose built 80,000 sq ft factory on Deeside Business Park. We were also able to include an academy kitchen where our creative chefs produce between 10 - 20 new dishes a week for consideration by our clients, which was always one of my dreams. They oversaw the entire financial project and ensured that we applied for all the correct grants and funding that were available to us.
Most of all we have a brilliant relationship with Gardners. They share our vision and have never constrained our liberal thinking. They are part of our team and are a key part in the future of KK. With their help we are on target to increase our turnover to £30M by 2012 and we don't plan to stop there.
