ABOUT US

It was almost 2 decades ago that the first PAK Foods was established in Derby. Since then there has been no looking back and PAK FOODS today is a trusted name and a significant contributor to the fast paced economic and social growth of the City of Derby.

An addition of 4 more stores have come up in convenient locations across the Midlands, East Midlands and North Staffordshire. With its unbeatably high standard of quality and service, PAK has become a name synonymous with excellence in the regions it operates in today.

True to its mission of absolute customer satisfaction, PAK provides the freshest fruit and vegetables, quality meats and all the big household brands at unbelievably low prices.

The efficiency of the chain was recognized when PAK was awarded the WINNER of “East Midlands Best Retail Awards” award in 2005, for overall excellence in the field of food retailing. It was a true testament to the competence of PAK in successfully catering to the needs of a diverse population.

At PAK we nurture and protect the brands that we sell. Brand building is a passion at PAK, which we perform with the diligence and experienced professionalism of years in retail marketing. Some of the brands we champion are EAST END, NATCO, KTC, CHAMPION, TILDA, to name a few.

OUR FOUNDERS

M.Altaf, M.Abdul-Razaq, M.Nawaz, M.Ramzan, M.Ashfaq – PAK FOODS Founders Our founders opened a small grocery store in Lenton, Nottingham in the 1990’s and set in motion a success story that continues to this day.

Their uncompromisingly high standards and skilful management are the building blocks upon which the business has securely built what is today one of the largest independent retail chains in the UK.

Today, the company’s integration as a leading independent retailer is what sets PAK FOODS apart from others.

PHILOSOPHY

At PAK, customers always get more. This philosophy and statement is the direction taken by the company, be it satisfaction, value or range.

To further emphasise this, PAK outlets have come up in convenient locations across the UK – making everyday shopping easy and fun with its unbeatably high standard of quality and service.

True to its mission of absolute customer satisfaction, PAK provides the freshest fruit and vegetables, quality meats and all the big household brands at unbelievably low prices.

It all started in the 90s… Would you believe we started out as a single convenience store? It’s true. Way back in 1989. We were called Pricewise. In ‘96, our founders, changed our name (yes, PAK FOODS) and the way we do business.

Most importantly, we started to introduce ethnic, hard-to-find, great-tasting foods under the “PAK FOODS” name. We cut our costs and saved you money. Still do. And that’s important, because “Value” is a concept we take very seriously. And by ‘Value,’ we mean great everyday prices on all of our great products — no sales, no gimmicks, no clubs to join, no special cards to swipe… How do we do it?

We buy direct from suppliers whenever possible, we bargain hard to get the best price, and then pass the savings on to you.

If an item doesn’t pull its weight in our stores, it goes away to gangway for something else.

We buy in volume and contract early to get the best prices.

We keep our costs low — because every penny we save is a penny you save.

It’s not complicated. We just focus on what matters — great food + great prices = Value
