About Us

Established over 25 years ago, Brands Direct has developed a growing reputation within the industry for delivering innovative and quality products to the retail market.

Working closely with our manufacturing partners we have developed first to market concepts from within our drinks, infant foods and gluten free ranges. Our philosophy is to work hand in hand with both retailers and manufacturing partners in developing a trusted and long term relationship that creates profitable and sustainable products.

Our business ethos is to offer a Category Management solution for our customers and partners from concept to shelf.

In December 2018 Brands Direct Ltd participated in an Agents & Brokers issue 2 BRC Global Standards audit in which we achieved an outstanding result of a AA grade.

Quality & Technical

As part of our process all suppliers are regularly audited and approved to highest recognised industry standards to match the strict requirements the UK retailers insist on. Our own internal procedures ensure that all products comply with the technical definition of quality, safety and legality.

Our own team of dedicated Technical and Quality Managers understand and implement specific individual requirements of our customers and will support all suppliers in achieving these standards. They all have an intrinsic part to play in the development of all NPD to ensure they deliver exactly what the customer wants and expects.

We are committed to ethical sourcing and all suppliers are members of Sedex and we also work with them to ensure that we are developing a sustainable product.
