Winterbotham Darby is an award-winning supplier of high quality continental food products to the UK foodservice and retail market. Established in 1962 we have been at the forefront of categories like continental meats, chilled olives, antipasti and continental morning goods that have fundamentally changed the eating habits of the UK. As well as our Deli Solutions and Alatoni manufacturing sites in the UK, we work closely with over 80 partnering production sites across Europe and provide end-to-end solutions for our customers, from factory auditing and product development to packaging design and category management.
With a strong focus on NPD we keep ahead of the trends to ensure our customers are at the forefront of the UK eating out market. Recent examples of this include our Vivera range which is a completely Vegan focussed meat-replacement range, the first of its kind in the UK. With the rise of the flexitarian consumer, this range enables our customers to deliver a complete vegan meal solution that does not compromise on taste, texture or quality.
Across our olive and antipasti category we have complete visibility of the growing, processing and manufacturing stages. This allows us to have a thorough knowledge of the end-to-end supply chain.
We are passionate about improving animal welfare and our European farm partnership has been the driving force in delivering significant advances in farm animal welfare. In 2016 we won, with our long-term Italian partner, a Good Pig Award at the Compassion in World Farming (CIWF) awards.
