We source raw materials directly or via BRC accredited brokers. All growers are audited by ourselves or the broker prior to any trade deal being arranged, and sampling the product prior to shipment is a key part of our process. On arrival, all containers and their contents are checked and tested by our quality team.

Product labelling system

Private Labelling

We offer an “own label” private labelling service for existing brands.

A private label product is manufactured by us and sold under a retailer’s brand name. As the retailer, you specify everything about the product – what goes in it, how it’s packaged, what the label looks like – and pay to have it produced and delivered to your store.

HBS Foods - Delivery


Most wholesale products are processed to order to ensure quality and maximum freshness, and shipped on BRC accredited transport. For smaller and more urgent orders, we offer a next day delivery service via our online store, which is shipped by DPD.
