|Welcome to the Blueberry Group
The Blueberry Group supplies ambient speciality foods to all sectors of the UK retail marketplace. Trading as Fosters Traditional Foods and The Foodfinders, the business successfully services the independent retailer and the multiple retail sector without compromise. A successful export business unit also forms part of the group in order to take our product offer to over 29 countries worldwide. Having seen significant growth since a sales restructure in 2008, our export division is known to it's customers as Chambers, specialist suppliers of British Confectionery and Fine Foods.
The group owns a number of niche food brands, which it supplies to premium retail stores across the world. These marques include our heritage brands of which we are very proud : Langdale was established in 1745 and is the oldest flavours and essences brand in the UK...if not the world! whilst John Lusty was established over a century later in 1848 and now consists of a range of speciality soups, stocks and consommes as well as other carefully selected delicacies.
More recent additions to the brand portfolio, but no less important, are our grocery brands - Danfood, Spinnaker and Boulevard - as well as speciality brands which form a core part of the range and which we offer exclusively to the independent retailer, namely Fosters, Home Recipe, The Fudge Tree and The Treat Company. Operating from a 100,000sq ft facility in Market Harborough, the Blueberry Group has 110 employees and despatches a staggering 25,000 consignments each year. We pride ourselves on service and consistently achieve an industry leading standards of fulfilment despite operating such a complex distribution operation to over 3,500 customers each year.
