Bakkavor is focused solely on manufacturing fresh prepared foods, one of the most advanced, innovative and dynamic food markets in the world.

Our core market is the UK and if you shop in any of the UK major grocery retailers you are more than likely to have bought one of our products - but are less likely to be familiar with our company name. This is because the vast majority of the products we make are marketed under the private-label brands of our customers. As well as the UK, we also supply fresh prepared products in the US and China.

The products we make are prepared ready to eat, ready to reheat or ready to cook. We make them just like they’re made at home, starting with high-quality ingredients, carefully selected from growers, our own farms and from suppliers we trust.

We operate to a 'just-in-time' model, manufacturing to tight deadlines. We often deliver on large orders within 24 hours, 364 days a year, keeping products chilled throughout the process – this takes a lot of planning and teams of dedicated people who are passionate about the foods we make.
