About Heron Foods Ltd
Heron Foods Ltd. is an English retail chain founded in 1979 and based in Melton with 243 stores
Our story is one of success, growth and development
We are proud of our history, our staff and our achievement of serving people with high quality, low priced groceries. Our first store opened in 1979 on Holderness Road in Hull and proved to be an immediate success with local people. Further stores were opened in quick succession throughout Hull and the East Riding and then further afield in Lincolnshire and South and North Yorkshire.
A new era
In February 2003 the Company changed hands, but remained a family business and was acquired by the present management team.
We now trade from over 240 stores, employ over 3000 people and are constantly striving to expand and spread our message of quality and value throughout the country.
Heron Foods was ranked twelfth by turnover in The Grocer magazine’s survey of the top fifty independent grocery retailers (The Grocer magazine 13th March 2014) based on turnover in the year to 31st March 2014.
In 2009 we moved away from our ageing cold store and warehouse operation in West Hull to a purpose built facility measuring 270,000 square feet at Melton in East Yorkshire, just to the West of Hull, which has been designed to enable the Company to continue with its ambitious growth plans.
