Devon is the home of Philip Dennis Foodservice, a family-owned regional wholesaler supplying a complete range of frozen, chilled and ambient foods as well as a bespoke Butchery and Fishmonger service.

Managing Director, Stephen Carr says: ’The company all started over a 100 years ago when Archie Dennis opened a Butcher’s shop in Braunton, North Devon. It was from there that his son, Philip, and Grandson John had the idea of a food service company and the business has now grown to employing 300 staff with three depots, Butchery and Fish Plants serving customers in the Midlands, Oxfordshire and South West region.


Our Philip Dennis lorries are now a common sight around the roads of Devon and our great location means that in addition to our core foodservice products, we can also offer our customers the finest Exmoor Beef and Westcountry PGI Beef, as well as locally caught Lundy Fish.

The company has always been very proud of its Devon roots and having had such a great local customer base has allowed us to develop and grow the company and we are now very proud to be able to offer over 5000 products from over 200 suppliers working with restaurants, pubs, hotels, schools and cafés across the county.’
