The Homestead story

Homestead opened for business in 1983, set up by John Weatherby and Bob Gibson, two men with huge experience of the food industry.

More than twenty-five later years we are going strong and still serving many of the same customers – a testament to the importance we place on relationships. Today Paul Weatherby leads the Homestead team from our offices in Godalming, Surrey.

Homestead customers include the major UK multiple retailers and food service companies.

Our suppliers come from across the UK and Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific. Two thirds of the business is retail and one-third food service. We have a special focus on product development.
