Our Story

Founded by Dr. John Randall in 1990, Kanes Foods has grown into one of the UK's leading suppliers of prepared salads and vegetables.


Dr. Randall was a pioneer in prepared produce who saw an opportunity in the consumer need for convenience products and was at the forefront of the development of the washed and ready-to-eat salads and vegetables that are so readily available today. Since our business began we've expanded into the land behind ‘The Doc’s’ rural Worcestershire cottage and today it covers 28 acres, employing 1,100 people, and ‘The Doc’s cottage’, where he lived for many years as the business grew, is now home to our boardroom and training suite.

Under the Doc's entrepreneurial leadership Kanes enjoyed two decades of great success, growing turnover to over £100 million and establishing the business as a leader in the food industry.

Now owned by two of his sons, the Kanes business is run by its leadership team, headed by CEO Steve Corby, and including a combination long-serving Kanes employees and specialists who've developed their expertise further-a-field, so that together they have a unique perspective on the market and its opportunities and can provide a clear strategic plan.
