Brands such as Global, Kilner, and Mason Cash are supplied through the reseller.

The company has already provided products for some of the area’s most renowned restaurants, with Country Valley Foods’ MD Edward Munro telling local news outlet, Gazette Live: “Chef & Baker pretty much stocks anything a restaurant or hotel would require.

“But that kind of stuff is also ideal for the home, so we are also open to the public – giving people a chance to buy stuff that isn’t available on the high street or even online.

“Better still, they will be able to purchase these items at trade prices.”
