About C24


Welcome to Catering24: Your Modern Food Packaging Solution

At Catering24, we're not just about catering disposables and cleaning products; we're your partners in delivering innovation, convenience, and outstanding service. As a family-owned business spanning generations, we've been at the forefront of revolutionizing the food service industry in the UK since 1992.

Our Journey: From Humble Beginnings to Leading the Way

What started as Midland Catering Supplies in Nottingham has blossomed into an award-winning venture known for its exceptional products and top-tier service. With a single delivery van and a small inventory, we laid the foundation of exceptional customer experiences in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, and beyond.

As our fleet expanded and warehouses grew, so did our reputation. National contracts, Local Authorities, and Independent Caterers across the UK joined our family. The ever-evolving grab-and-go food packaging market witnessed remarkable growth, and we embraced this change with a product range that set trends and met innovation head-on.

Embracing Change: Becoming Magenta UK

In 2012, our expansion took us to Norfolk, where we acquired Safety Zone, a company focused on cleaning and hygiene solutions. This led to our transformation into Magenta UK in 2013, a unified brand symbolizing excellence in both locations and nationwide.

Meeting the Future: Catering24's Rise

With a booming takeaway and cafe food service industry, the demand for convenience and sustainability skyrocketed. Customers wanted grab-and-go options that combined environmental consciousness, innovative design, and value-added experiences. This set the stage for Catering24's emergence in 2016 as a prominent online distributor of catering disposables, cleaning solutions, and hygiene essentials.

Today's Catering24: Your Ultimate Partner

In July 2020, Catering24 acquired Magenta UK and embraced its name to create a powerful identity that resonates with our values. We're not just a brand; we're the essence of modernity and efficiency in the food packaging landscape. Our reputation is built on fast deliveries, exceptional customer care, and a diverse range of high quality products at unbeatable value.
