Our Story

Woods Foodservice originated from Woods Table Dainties, a company supplying fine foods to the catering trade in the swinging sixties.

As Woods Table Dainties became more successful they were eventually bought out by a larger company, Winton Smith. At this point Winton Smith offered Alfred Labbett, Woods Table Daintie’s best sales executive, a franchise for the London area which he duly took. Alfred eventually created his own company, Woods Caterfoods. Alfred set about increasing the company’s profile in London and surrounding areas.
