As one of the UK’s leading food manufacturers, we supply a wide range of savoury products, cakes and ready meals to many of the UK’s top restaurant brands, food service distributors and independent bakers, as well as 26 overseas export markets. It’s a far cry from our humble beginnings back in 1926, when John James Wright started providing quality, wholesome food for the ordinary working people of Stoke-on-Trent. The food was so good that we still make the first product he ever sold— a meat and potato pie — using the same 11 original ingredients.
In spite of our exponential growth we have remained a family business; guided by Peter Wright, great-grandson of the founder John Wright. His founding principles of quality, innovation and integrity are still honoured, and it is this drive and passion that has seen over 90 years of continued investment.
Spending in excess of 40 million pounds over the last 20 years on our state of the art manufacturing facilities and distribution centre, we have been able to improve efficiencies, reduce waste, and bring in greater operational flexibility.
Whether we are supplying major restaurant chains, independent bakers or supermarkets, innovation and quality is at the heart of everything we produce. A passion that is further illustrated through the introduction of our sub brands; the traditional, fresh baked bread from our Sheaf Street Bakery and Urban Bistro our full service vending solution.
None of this would be possible without the unwavering support and commitment from every one of our 570 employees, who ensure our ongoing success.
We believe in making a difference. We believe our name stands for value for money, quality and innovation and with the integrity of our skilled workforce, we aim to provide our customers with a service second to none.
As Wrights heads towards its land mark centenary, we will remain true to our family heritage of quality wholesome food, that has allowed us to successfully evolve into a major player in the food industry.
