UK-based foods specialist Brakes Group was acquired in 2016 by Sysco Corporation, a US company which also owns Ireland’s leading foodservice provider, Pallas Foods.
Today, the management teams of Brakes Ireland and Pallas Foods have announced plans to bring our two companies together.
We will offer our customers the best of both businesses, operating under the Pallas Foods brand. Brakes and Pallas Foods will continue to operate on a separate basis in Northern Ireland, at this stage. No action is required just yet from any of our customers or suppliers.
This move presents an exciting opportunity for our combined companies to create Ireland’s premier foodservice distributor. We will combine Pallas Foods’ traditional strengths and Brakes Group’s huge range of own-brand foodservice goods.
Suppliers and customers will be contacted individually about our plans, which will be implemented in stages over the Spring and Summer of 2017.
