Cyprofood has outlined expansion plans to become a national wholesaler in eight years or less.
The company recently expanded the size of its warehouse in north London to offer retailers in the area more products.
Director Cetin Agcagul said: “We have moved three times, and expanded our current location into an old Bestway depot next door to our current one.
“The next stage of our evolution is to expand into west London in a move to the Park Royal area.
“These things don’t happen overnight, but we plan to be become a national company with 10 branches of Cyprofood across the UK within five-to-eight years.”
The plans come as Cyprofood recently expanded its range available to retailers. Agcagul added: “Fruit and vegetables is still a big area for us, but we now do frozen, tobacco and ambient, to name just a few.
“Our customers tend to dictate what new products or categories we focus on, and we are always adding to our portfolio to aid our customers. We are now 50% foodservice and 50% convenience, but we don’t neglect either.
“We also have customers from all over the UK and have facilities that serve the entire UK.
“To achieve this, we use third-party logistics firms to help with that. For example, the furthest we distribute to is Belfast and Dundee.”
