Direct Food Ingredients heads for transatlantic success with US opening

Direct Food Ingredients is consolidating its longstanding status as the market leader in ingredients distribution by opening an office in the USA.

The food, nutritional and sports ingredients distributor chose Los Angeles for its dedicated office and warehouse facility which will support the company’s international expansion plans.

Headed up by Abe Cortez, Vice President of the US office, the new base will focus on the sports nutrition and nutraceutical sectors. Direct Food Ingredients has built a strong position and reputation in the UK market. The expansion marks the company’s continuing success having recently announced a turnover of over £6 million in the first six months of trading this year.

Managing Director at Direct Food Ingredients, Steve Loake, comments: “Opening the new office is a huge achievement and an important step in our goal to bring our professionalism, stringent procedures and knowledge of this complex market overseas.

“Unfortunately many areas of the US market are driven by low quality imports from China so we are keen to bring our dedication to high standards and quality to the US.

“Over the past 20 years, we have become an industry leader in the UK and it is now time for us to expand overseas. The US is the ideal place to begin and we look forward to supplying customers with our impeccable ingredients from our vast portfolio.”
