On Friday 15th October, Renshawnapier Thornbury, part of the Real Good Food Company Plc (RGFC), went back to its roots and rebranded as Garrett Ingredients, the company’s original family name when it was first formed in 1948.

The decision was made by the management team earlier this year following their desire to regain the company’s own identity and stand proud of its heritage. As Garrett Ingredients, the company will continue to help develop the UK’s food manufacturing industry and provide the technical expertise upon which it has built its long deserved reputation.

Garrett Ingredients was founded just after the Second World War when its founder, Alan Garrett, left the army to become an agent for several British food companies. He built the company on supplying raw materials to smaller businesses who were struggling to source them elsewhere; a service the company still prides itself on today. Garrett Ingredients changed hands in 1990 and developed into new areas to become part of the Real Good Food Company Plc as Renshawnapier Thornbury.

Trading Director of Garrett Ingredients, Tom Fowler who heads up the Thornbury business explains the reason for the name change:

“We have been a major player in UK food manufacturing for several years, initially as Garrett Ingredients for 42 years and more recently as Renshawnapier Thornbury. We are proud of our long heritage in the industry and we feel that the Garrett Ingredients name better presents the high level of technical expertise and customer service upon which we have built our reputation over the past seven decades.”

Garrett Ingredients will remain a division of Renshawnapier Ltd and part of the Real Good Food Company Plc (RGFC).

Tom continues,

“Our business has always been based on providing a big company service with a small company focus and Garrett Ingredients can continue to deliver this under the umbrella of the Real Good Food Company Plc. Maintaining the support of the Group will continue to provide assurance and additional trading benefits to all of Garrett Ingredients’ customers and suppliers.”

Today Garrett Ingredients is one of the foremost ingredients suppliers in UK, providing dairy, baking and sugar-based products to a large number of UK food manufacturers and suppliers.
