About company

Ramsden International is the UK’s leading wholesale exporter of British grocery brands, selling over 24,000 products to more than 650 customers in 133 countries worldwide. Our approach of entrepreneurialism, innovation and community have brought global success, injecting more than £515 million into the British economy since 1995.

We’re a third-generation family business, established in 1946 in Grimsby, England and have been exporting groceries since the 1970s. In addition to our UK head office, we have international offices in South Africa, Hong Kong and Dubai. This allows us to employ in-country salespeople with the local knowledge required to successfully manage the commercial relationships within each territory.

As part of our commitment to providing first-class service, we have an experienced team of Customer Service Export Advisors who speak a total of 18 different languages. We also offer customers the complete supply chain solution, from logistics and category management to data compliance and relabelling, which has turned us from simply being a wholesale distributor into an unmatched value-added service provider.

We have a loyal and varied customer base, from small, independent retailers to large supermarkets and wholesalers. We boast a huge variety of products within our ranges of Everyday, Speciality, Health, Chilled and Frozen, along with an exceptional seasonal offering.
