Fulton's Foods is a frozen food retailer chain, which is based in Darton, South Yorkshire, and operates throughout The Midlands and the North of England.

History[edit]

The company was founded by Jack Fulton in 1960 as a poultry business.[1] It diversified into frozen foods in 1974, using the company name Frozen Value Ltd.[2] In August 1997, it was then subject to a management buy-in, financed by 3i Group,[3] when Kevin Gunter took control of the business.[2]

In October 2005, it opened a 70,000 sq ft (6,500 m2) depot in Darton, South Yorkshire.[1] and in March 2013, the company was rebranded Fulton's Foods.[4]

The founder, Jack Fulton, died on 29 September 2015.[5]
