About us

Delivering trusted food & outstanding service for over 100 years.

Philip Dennis is a family-owned regional wholesaler, supplying customers in the Midlands, Oxfordshire and South West with a complete range of frozen, chilled, and ambient foods together with fresh meat, fresh fish and non-foods.

Humble Beginnings

EVER SINCE ARCHIE DENNIS opened our first butchers in Braunton, Devon, over a century ago, we have understood the need for being passionate about everything that we do. That passion is shared across all areas of Philip Dennis today and ensures we deliver first rate customer service

IT WAS THERE THAT his son Philip fell in love with foodservice and started the company we have now. The company has grown to offer a full foodservice including Chilled, Frozen, Ambient, as well as a bespoke Butchery and Fishmonger service, and now has multiple offices and depots across the Midlands, Oxfordshire and South-West.

LED BY OUR MANAGING Director Stephen Carr, Philip Dennis now employs over 300 staff, all dedicated to ‘feeding your passion’ and providing the best customer service possible. In 2017, Philip’s grandson, Peter, joined the company to head up its online shopping service, taking the family business into the future and its fourth generation.

A sustainable approach

A greener future

Wind Turbines

In 2012, the Dennis family invested in an 80 meter high 500kw wind turbine as part of ongoing efforts to support the environment. Our wind turbines now produce up to 60% of our energy requirements.

Solar Panels

Our depot solar panels can produce over 340kw of power, saving over 20 million kilograms of CO2 – the combined CO2 saving power of our solar panels and wind turbines is the equivalent of planting over 100,000 trees! Sensory lights, Tesla batteries and alternator driven refrigeration units on our vehicles, all combine to help get us greener every day.

Other Inititatives

We re-cycle over 150 tonnes each year including plastics, cardboard and polystyrene and we are encouraging suppliers to actively reduce their use of plastics and packaging wherever possible. We are also constantly reviewing our products to include more environmentally friendly ranges including compostable takeaway items and new eco-friendly cleaning solutions.
