Polish Specialities - No 1 for Polish foods

Up to a few years ago Polish food products were few and far between in the UK in terms of availability, taking a back seat to other world foods such as Italian and Indian. Now that's all changed, largely due to Polish Specialities Ltd, the UK number 1 for Polish foods.

Polish Specialities Ltd started operations here in 1999, in the days when only Polish kabanos and sauerkraut were widely available in supermarkets and convenience stores.

Polish Specialities Director Magda Harvey recalls: "At that time we were running our first delicatessen store in Hammersmith, and offering wholesale supplies to approximately thirty other stores. Nowadays we have a chain of franchised Polish Specialities Delicatessens a wholesale cash 'n' carry in Croydon, South London and a distribution centre, with a buyer's office in Poland."

Polish Specialities' customers here include Booker, Morrison's, Sainsbury's, Budgens and Londis, and well over a thousand convenience stores across the UK. The company distributes Polish food and drink products nationwide as far as Aberdeen and Jersey.

"Being a Polish-rooted company," says Magda, "we have the best knowledge of the typical national dishes and tastes of home. That is why we have the only comprehensive selection of the best selling brands. We offer Britain's widest choice of Polish food and drink, available on a daily basis with delivery anywhere in the UK within forty-eight hours of receiving an order."

Polish Specialities' range consists of over 2,000 lines including fresh and ambient products. They all come directly from producers in Poland, chosen by the company's skilled buyers.

Magda explains: "In Poland traditional methods are still used in preparing meats, cheeses, pickles and so on, giving that unique home style taste. We hope that very soon Polish dumplings and hunter's stew will be as popular here as pizza or curry."

Being natural and healthy, Polish foods hold international prizes for quality and taste. All the products Polish Specialities imports come from factories of the highest standards, which have been awarded licences for export to the EEC.

"We are a modern and dynamic company," says Magda. "When it comes to Polish food in the UK, no one can compete with our expertise and service. We can satisfy the needs of convenience stores as well as supermarkets and wholesalers. We have experience in distribution of chilled products to chains & retailers. For those interested in specialising in Polish food, we also offer a franchise deal with full support if they wish to carry the Polish Specialities brand name."
