About us

Our History and Transformation

CN Foods traces its beginnings to the early 1990s when Nilesh Shah operated as a sole trader. At that time, CN primarily supplied Greek meats and yoghurts. In 2013, a significant milestone was reached when Chris Monery and Heeran Shah merged their businesses with CN Foods and acquired warehouse space in London.

Our journey took a decisive turn as we entered the industry with a deep sense of dissatisfaction with the prevailing service standards in the distribution market. We were determined to make a substantial difference and believed we could elevate the industry's service quality. Our commitment to excellence led us to incorporate the latest technological advancements, making us pioneers in adopting cutting-edge solutions.

Since then, CN Foods has undergone a remarkable transformation, evolving from a small-scale operation to becoming one of the largest independent food and drink distributors in London. We continuously strive for perfection, refining our processes and service delivery, and we are proud to be at the forefront of the industry, driven by a relentless pursuit of excellence.

Our Focus

Our core mission is to cater to London's independent retail market. We place a strong emphasis on building enduring relationships, collaborating closely with our valued brands and customer base. Every six months, we proactively evolve our best practices to address complex challenges while enhancing our service levels.


At CN Foods, we are committed to ensuring that the public has access to exceptional food and beverages. "Fantastic" for us means delivering exceptional taste, affordability, minimal environmental and social impact, and a commitment to using only high-quality ingredients.
