about us

Our history

Almost 30 years ago John Boulger started Crowndale and began by supplying Leicestershire butchers with cooked meats, bacon and sausages. As times changed he built the business into a fully established food wholesale operation, becoming a LimitedCompany in 2002.
We have gained a large, loyal customer base ranging from schools and universities to deli shops and cafes across the county. As the Company has grown the product range has also expanded and we now supply thousands of products in chilled, frozen and ambient categories.
