Vestey Foods is part of the wider Vestey Holdings which also includes Donald Russell and Fine France UK, companies supplying luxury food products to high-end restaurants as well as directly to consumers.
The foundations of Vestey Holdings date back to the 1890s when brothers William and Edmund Vestey established the Union Cold Storage Company in Liverpool. Among the first to exploit the potential of refrigeration, they developed cold stores across the UK and throughout Russia, the Baltics, and Western Europe, enabling them to supply large quantities of quality affordable meat, poultry, eggs and fish to the growing UK population during the Industrial Revolution.
In the early 20th century, the business expanded into China, establishing a vast egg processing enterprise from six dedicated facilities on the eastern seaboard. With their fleet of Blue Star Line refrigerated vessels, they were able to supply the bakery trades in the UK, USA, Europe and South Africa for over fifty years.
In 1911, the Vestey brothers expanded their services into meat production, processing and distribution, with pastoral land and meatworks in Venezuela, Australia and Brazil, plus additional meatworks in New Zealand and Argentina. They also acquired market-stalls on the Smithfield Market and butcher shops throughout the UK, with around 3,000 Dewhurst outlets by 1923. The Blue Star fleet grew to become one of the most iconic shipping lines in history, having been rebuilt twice in the years following the two world wars before being sold in 1998.
By 2000, the vertically integrated model by which the food business had previously operated had been broken up, leading to farming, cold storage, and food import and distribution operating as stand-alone companies.
Pioneering and visionary, the entrepreneurial spirit of our forefathers continues to influence the way we run our business today.
