About Us

Since being founded just over 70 years ago, MKG Foods has gone from strength to strength. Today we are proud to be the Midlands’ number one foodservice provider, supplying hundreds of establishments from a variety of sectors across the region.

We currently offer over 1500 carefully selected products to ensure that our chilled, ambient and frozen food ranges offer something for everyone.

MKG Foods has always been a family-run company and despite our success, we still operate on the same core family values; that’s why we pride ourselves on quality, great service and reliability, and that’s why we’re your foodservice provider.

Our Values

We run our business on some core values that guide and motivate us to provide the best service to our customers.


MKG strives to maintain the highest delivery standards in the industry, with a 99.9% delivery rate, correct and on time. And where errors do occur, we get it right as soon as possible, not just ‘on your next delivery day’.

This delivery rate is also achieved with an order cut-off time of 10:00pm (online only). Fantastic service plus incredible convenience.

Our fleet of multi-temperature vehicles with temperature monitoring ensure your food is delivered safely.  We don’t use agency drivers so you’ll get to know your delivery driver and they’ll become a trusted point of contact.


Our team of buyers have over 100 years of combined experience in the industry. We know food inside out. This expert team see the best products at regular tasting evaluations and work with some of the best chefs in the business to ensure that our product range is continually updated and reflects current tastes and trends. At MKG we source the best variety of products, with the highest quality standards, at the best prices.

Plus, as part of the Sterling Supergroup, we take advantage of the joint turnover of over £500 million to secure the best deals on the best brands. Sterling also provide us with a cost-effective, value range to give you options to meet the tightest of budgets.


We encourage our staff from delivery, accounts, telesales, and field sales team to go above and beyond for you.

Added to this is the MKG Extravaganza, the largest food tasting festival in the Midlands. Every year, we arrange for 70 + suppliers to bring their wares for tasting in a plush environment. With great discounts on the day, prizes for every attendee, and a fun theme to make the most of the day, you’ll have a great time.


MKG is a family-run business that began three generations ago by Lewis Mayling and his colleagues Len Knee and Harry Garbett. The business first serviced clients in the Walsall area and grew from there with expansion into the distribution of products for the regional supermarkets.

Today there are three members of the Mayling family heavily involved with the business, and we supply customers in the catering, education, restaurant, sports clubs, care homes, and pub sectors with their food requirements, including ambient, chilled and frozen. We stand behind all our deliveries, goods, and people, and you can trust that we want your business to succeed too.

We’re always on hand to help with your requirements and you can get hold of any one of the management team whenever you need.


At MKG we’re embracing a new digital world with constant upgrades to our processes to ensure an ever-improved service to you. New technology enables us to provide swifter service, faster delivery times, and more convenient ordering techniques, cutting down on wasteful admin time.
