A BRADFORD company with humble beginnings has won a national award.

Adams Foodservice Trading Ltd has been awarded the prestigious Federation of Wholesale Distributors Gold Award for Foodservice Wholesaler of the Year.

What started as a corner shop on Little Horton Lane, funded by World War II veteran Mirza Khan, Adams Foodservice has evolved into a leading firm within the sector.

Adams Foodservice puts its success down to a dedicated team, valued partners, family, and the support of the community.

Director Sajad Hussain said: "This award is a testament to the vital role our organisation plays in the local community and the broader Foodservice landscape."

The main trading company is proud to be net-zero, recently featured by British Gas for its commitment to environmental responsibility for its fleet of electric company vehicles, reliance on 100 per cent green energy, and installation of solar panels on major depots.

Adams Foodservice has also become a key part of the Ramadan Charities Cake Campaigns.

Over the past decade, it has distributed more than 60,000 cakes during the holy month, generating £2.3 million in net proceeds for various charities. 

In retirement, the firm's founders are not resting and run a green, sustainable profit-for-purpose farm in Pakistan.

This promotes environmental responsibility but also provides employment opportunities, particularly for women on the poverty line.
