Wholesaler - New product line - SantanderCB

A Nottingham-based food and drink wholesaler has developed a new product line and hired additional staff as part of an investment drive backed by Santander Corporate & Commercial.

GCL Food Ingredients, previously Giorgio's Continental, has invested £2.5m in its manufacturing operation, which was supported by a £1m package from Santander.

Salvatore Devivo, managing director of GCL, said: 'GCL Food Ingredients aims to work closely with both our customers and suppliers to create a true food chain partnership.'

Stephen Young, relationship director at Santander Corporate & Commercial, added: 'We have worked with Giorgio's for the last five years and in that time have seen the business go from strength to strength. They have carved out a market for themselves as a provider of quality food ingredients which are recognised in their impressive client list. We are excited to continue supporting Salvatore and the team as they embark on this next stage of growth.'
