Direct Food Ingredients Ltd Logo

Direct Food Ingredients Ltd

Ingredient innovator



Supplying materials into food manufacturing, sports nutrition, animal feed and nutrition, soft drinks and beverages, nutraceutical, and general chemical sectors, Direct Food Ingredients is proud to boast holding the largest number of accreditations of any UK based materials distributor.

We recognise our corporate social responsibility, and the importance of only importing materials that are fit for purpose and suitable for both the UK and U.S supply chain.

Service & Logistics

Continuing our ethos of providing raving fan service, we offer next day delivery on all orders received before 12pm the previous day, for products available from stock.


Our experienced sales team currently has 11 members, serving small, medium and large sized blue-chip organisations across multiple sectors, across Europe.

As a collective, we have experience spanning over 90 years. We are confident that we are able to fulfil our customer’s requirements and make recommendations for suitable materials solutions efficiently and effectively.

Purchasing & Global Sourcing

We stock hundreds of quality assured materials; we understand that a secure readily available supply chain is business critical for our customers. In addition, we are able to source materials specifically to our customer’s requirements, through our extensive long standing global partnerships.

Blue Diamond

16 Years ago we decided to introduce our own label brand, Blue Diamond TM.

We wanted to differentiate our business from every other functional ingredient and material distributor in the UK.

Our ethos was simple to develop a recognised quality system that would in time be recognisable to the industries in which we serve.
