Over the past years, frozen food has become an essential part of every modern kitchen. With the fast pace of life and hectic schedules, frozen food is often the go-to solution. First, however, you must choose a reliable, well-established frozen food wholesaler. 

Handling frozen food and storing it can be extremely challenging. That is why you need to select your frozen food wholesaler carefully.

To help you find the best frozen food wholesaler, here is a quick guide on what to look for:

Years of Experience

After two action-packed days, 368 exhibitor stands, and just under 5,000 visitors, New Zealand’s largest b2b show, the Foodstuffs Expo 2023, was a great success for the company!

The Markwell Foods retail team was thrilled to return to Claudelands Event Centre in Hamilton on the 8th and 9th of March and gather alongside hundreds of other supermarket suppliers and reconnect with our friends over at foodies and build on those relationships with our suppliers.

Over the two days, we prepared a delicious array of our retail range like our Shore Mariner Pre-fried Prawn Twisters, Panko Crumbed Scallop & Prawn Bites. The show was also was the perfect opportunity to showcase our delicious new up-and-coming product, Shore Mariner’s Prawn Hargow which went down a treat!

Not did our stand display our extensive frozen food retail range, but we gave away branded merchandise via our popular spinning wheel, we captured important leads for the team to nurture new relationships, and gave away $500 worth of Markwell Foods products to one grateful winner.

Thanks again to the team over at Foodstuffs for having us, and all the hardworking partners who helped our experience run smoothly!
