• About

We are Kentas

Our company and the service we provide is summarised in the next few paragraphs.

From a North London start as butchers in the early 1970’s, Kentas soon relocated to Smithfield, the oldest meat market in the world, embracing a wider offering of hams, cheeses, pastas, bakery products etc in the process.  With all the character and energy of market trading in its DNA, Kentas of London has developed by building long lasting relationships through consistent supply of high quality foods at the right price.

To accommodate our growth and upgrade facilities we relocated our head office to our Luton depot in 2003. This 18,000 sq ft unit has enabled us to further meet customer requirements and our key distribution area now covers the East and the Midlands as well as our stronghold in the South and London.

This modern facility has achieved Gold level accreditation from CMI in addition to which we hold the highest five star award from the local environmental health authorities for the standards we achieve.
