About Good Food Wines
An Introduction to GFW
GOOD FOOD WINES LTD (‘GFW’) was established in 1984 as an independent importer, blender and packager of a wide range of alcoholic beverages (including wines, spirits, liqueurs, beers and ciders), vinegars and condiments, which are supplied as ingredients to the UK food manufacturing industry.
Based in Strood in Kent, GFW has grown steadily to establish itself as a leader in our field, progressing the trend of using quality alcoholic beverages in food. The Company prides itself on the high specification of its products and service to its customers, who today include the majority of the large group manufacturers and many of the most prestigious names in the food industry. These in turn also produce own-label products (e.g. ready meals, desserts, sauces) for the major supermarket retailers. Where alcoholic products are supplied to customers, GFW issues an additional Duty invoice, which enables food producers to reclaim this from UK HM Revenue & Customs as a food ingredient.
The company’s site at Strood, which employs circa 25 persons, has a multi-million litre bulk wine storage capacity (including bonded and duty paid). The production operations are carried out in food-grade facilities (including a new vinegar plant from 2018), where the products are repackaged into a range of food-suitable plastic containers (5-litres to 1000-litres capacity). The company’s operations are accredited to the BRC Global Standard at AA standard for Food Safety.
