Community Foods will distribute for Buderim Ginger

Natural and organic dried food company Community Foods has been appointed as the UK distributor for Buderim Ginger, wholly owned Australian ginger processor and a large retail ginger brand in Australia to the bakery and ingredients customers and the retail sector.

Community will be taking over from Bath-based company GLM Trading, whose owners are retiring after two decades of representing the business in the UK.

Buderim Ginger has been supplying and exporting ginger to the UK and rest of the world for over 80 years, with some grower partnerships going back to the very beginning and some supplier relationships spanning for more than six decades. In the UK, Buderim Ginger’s retail products are stocked in Lakeland and Booths, but the majority of its UK business is used as ingredients for the bakery industry.

Buderim Ginger’s new distributor Community Foods are a UK packer and supplier of dried fruits, nuts and seeds.

“It’s a major compliment to be asked to represent Buderim Ginger as their UK distributors,” commented Martin Rome, Managing Director, Community Foods. “We’re passionate about working with growers and brands who share our beliefs and high integrity and give consumers and customers the extra reassurance they are looking for, ethically, environmentally, and in product quality, and we look forward to playing our part in the next chapter of their success story.”

Community Foods’ appointment marks a milestone in Buderim Ginger’s UK trading history, according to Simon Hambleton, Senior Business Development Manager at Buderim Ginger.

“After twenty years, Liam O’Gorman of GLM Trading has decided to retire and move onto the next adventures of his life. He has enjoyed a long working relationship representing Buderim Ginger, the world’s finest ginger in the United Kingdom, and we wish him well in the future,” said Simon. “We would like to confirm our support of Community Foods in continuing to represent Buderim Ginger’s UK sales from here on. We are confident that Community Foods has the technical, innovation and operational capabilities to serve our wide range of customers throughout the country.”
