170 years later, five generations of the Booth family have successfully led E.H Booth & Co Ltd from its humble beginnings. The current chairman Edwin J. Booth became chairman in 1997 and is supported by younger brother Graham. From a single shop to the present day the company now proudly boasts no fewer than 28 stores across Northern England, employing around 3,000 people.
In 2005, Booths moved its central warehouse production and distribution centre to state-of-the-art premises in Longridge, Preston. This helped facilitate the manufacturer and wholesale of Booths own label range which in turn has been recognised nationally for it superior taste and quality.
The company is consistently recognised as one of the best 100 businesses to work for in the country, winning countless awards. In 2006, Booths were declared second in the list of the World’s greatest Food Retailers.
