Angliss was established in Liverpool (circa 1948) by the Vestey family. Under the name “The Malayan Refrigerating Company”, the butchery business grew into an import and distribution of food to the Southeast Asian region. Although known for its supply of beef products from the Vestey’s cattle rearing and processing in New Zealand, Australia and Brazil, Angliss chose to divest these units and realign operations in the mid-1990s to diversify its product offering and supplier base. This strategic move positioned it to become a leading foodservice company in the new millennia.
In 2007, Angliss was bought over by the International Bidvest Group and became a part of Bidvest Asia Pacific, expanding its reach to encompass Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Macau and Singapore. Today, Angliss is an integrated foodservices company providing a full line of quality products including meat, seafood, dairy and a large variety of other foods to over 3,000 customers in Singapore alone. Its diverse business units include food service, wholesale, retail, marine services. Customers range from local and overseas airline flight kitchens to overseas resorts and cruise liners.
Bidcorp is an international broad-line foodservice group, listed on the JSE, South Africa, and present in developed and developing economies in five continents. Focused on foodservice, the business comprises a mix of well-established leading and rapidly growing market positions, offering significant future upside. The profile of the customer base is strategically targeted to fully service the foodservice industry’s needs.
