Magenta (UK) Ltd is a family-run SME business, with a friendly culture and strong work ethic that is cemented by our track record to deliver in full, on time and to form a collaborative partnership with our clients. Established in 1992 as Midland Catering Supplies, we re-branded to Magenta (UK) Ltd when we celebrated our 21st Anniversary in May 2013.
Ideally positioned in the heart of the UK, we are an experienced and competitive supplier to national businesses all over the country. We stock over 7,000 product lines, offering our clients a broad range to suit their needs. We serve a number of public sector organisations and private sector customers throughout the country, including a current supplier on the TUCO framework.
Steve Lloyd established Magenta (UK) Ltd after an extensive period working in the catering industry. As such, he has vast product knowledge and is accustomed to seasonal trends and promoting the availability of eco-friendly products. Steve is our primary shareholder and remains our company’s CEO. Charlie Dean is our Managing Director, having initially joined the company in 2005 as a Customer Relations Manager.
Both Steve and Charlie represent Magenta within major consortia that represent aspects of the catering industry:
In April 2003, Magenta was involved in the launch of the Food Packaging Association (FPA). The FPA brings together manufacturers and distributors of packaging used to serve and prepare food and beverages on the go with the UK’s hospitality industry. Their aim is to raise standards with regard to packaging safety, environment and in-use performance.
In early 2008, The SOCIUS Network was formed to represent Independent Distributors of non-food products to the food service sector. The Network covers all of the UK and seek to promote the benefits of purchasing goods, contract distribution and services together.
