Our Story

Nowadays, Thomas Ridley are one of the UK’s leading independent family-owned foodservice businesses, distributing thousands of restaurant quality food and drink products nationwide. We work in partnership with many local artisan producers situated across the East and the South East of England, championing their unique and high quality product offerings.
