The family-owned company, whose main distribution centre is on Burnley Bridge Business Park, won the coveted Gold Medal for Wholesale Service to Caterers at the Federation of Wholesale Distributors (FWD) event held at Old Billingsgate on November 24th.

The award is the second to be presented to Birchall Foodservice this year. In March the high-flying business was named Employer of the Year at the Red Rose Awards.

Company MD, Justin Birchall, said: “We have only entered two awards this year, so to win two out of two is fantastic! We are truly blessed to have an outstandingly good team of people working at Birchall Foodservice.

"This award is testament to the hard work and dedication of every single employee in every department of the business, from our drivers to our warehouse operatives to our telesales team, who consistently deliver fantastic customer service day in, day out.”
