Thomas Ridley provides a total foodservice solution for caterers within the care sector working with them as their preferred foodservice partner. Our range of products includes everything from grocery, chilled, fine foods, fruit & vegetables, butchery and frozen foods, to beverages, cleaning and housekeeping products, catering & janitorial disposables and a range of sundries and disposables.

As well as carrying a wealth of branded products, Thomas Ridley is proud to bring you our own dedicated foodservice brand, Country Range. Comprised of more than 500 carefully selected products across our whole category range, the Country Range brand delivers a high level of consistency and quality that caterers have been depending on for more than 20 years. Every product under the Country Range brand is sourced using BRC (British Retail Consortium) accredited production methods.

Here at Thomas Ridley we are passionate about delivering the best to care homes, and we work hard to provide a number of products, resources and services that help our customers in this sector.

Understanding the bespoke needs of the sector, we have a dedicated team of professionals servicing our care home sector accounts, from nutritionists and development chefs to dedicated account managers. These teams use their considerable knowledge and expertise to work with our customers on recipe ideas, product demonstrations, menu development and advice on how to meet the increasingly stringent legislation to reduce fat and salt content; making sure we deliver the products and services that are right for your establishment. A monthly magazine is distributed to all of our customers. 'Stir it up' covers the latest catering industry news, provides inspirational recipe ideas and includes a promotional brochure for the Country Range brand - plus other branded offers across our product categories.

We continue to invest back into the business, and have recently made huge investments into web ordering, communication systems, order processing, picking procedures, warehouse management and bulk storage. All of these investments increase our efficiency and accuracy, resulting in savings that can be passed on to you.

As a member of the National Association of Care Home Caterers (NACC), we are kept informed of the latest industry developments, ensuring we maintain the best service for care homes, giving you peace of mind that you are dealing with professionals who understand your sector. We are also members of the British Frozen Food Federation (BFFF) and Federation of Wholesale Distributors (FWD).

At Thomas Ridley we fully appreciate that care home catering is a challenging and complex sector, and the demands of this sector are only going to increase as the age of the British population continues to rise and more people seek the support of nursing and residential care.

Providing a healthy balanced diet plays a major part in the well-being and quality of life of care home residents and doing so can be a difficult challenge for operators. Catering for a broad spectrum of care needs from elderly residential living to nursing care for an array of physical and mental needs as well as providing crucial nutritional feeding for palliative or postoperative care, the task bestowed upon the care home chef is no simple feat.
