A new Development Kitchen for Creed Foodservice

Space worked closely with Creed to design and supply the facility which will be used by Creed’s clients to use for trying their products and developing new menu ideas. Creed are suppliers of high quality food, non-food products and related services to more than 1700 customers in the ‘out of home’ sector, employing some 250 staff at our two distribution centres in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and Ilkeston Derbyshire. The acquisition in 2008 of fresh produce and speciality foods supplier Mise en Place extended their range of products resulting in a genuine ‘one stop shop’ for the busy caterer.

“Space and Creed are both successful Gloucestershire companies working in the foodservice sector offering complimentary services and share many customers without competing in any way, so the collaboration made perfect sense.” said Space MD Mike Mellor.

Space specified equipment from Electrolux, who supported the project and worked closely with Space to deliver a cookline that could be used for almost every commercial kitchen scenario meaning that Creed client can experiment with many different ingredients and cooking methods.

The new facility is already in regular use and has been key to developing new key account business for Creed Foodservice.
