Branch Manager

Who are Oakhouse?

 

 

 

We’re Oakhouse Foods – one of the country’s favourite home meals services. We’ve been delivering our delicious frozen meals and desserts to homes across Britain for over 20 years. It’s our mission to create easy to  prepare, affordable and nutritious food that tastes great. All our meals are made to our own recipes from quality, wholesome ingredients and they’re all free from unwanted ingredients like artificial colours and flavours too – it’s just delicious food as nature intended. We take pride in our friendly, local service and our company has a true family feel.

 

It’s been an exciting few years so far for Oakhouse as we have been acquired by Kerry Foods – with great brands such as Richmond Sausages, Strings & Things & Rollover Hotdogs under their umbrella as well as bags of entrepreneurial spirit, we’re excited to be part of this fantastic business and are excited about what the future will hold!
