The Q Partnership was established in 1986 and is a legal limited company entity. Friars Pride, V A Whitley and Henry Colbeck are the three partner companies. Each of us are family businesses with a long history of supplying the fish and chip and catering markets. Together we have a combined history spanning 280 years.
Offering 12 distribution points across the UK, together through the Q Partnership, Friars Pride and our partners can offer a nationwide distribution network. With over 140 vehicles, over 2,000 product lines, supplying over 7,000 fish and chip shops the Q Partnership employs over 380 people.
We pride ourselves on bringing innovation to the fish and chip and catering sectors, through developing unique brands that perform in the tough out of home eating market place. We also pride ourselves on bringing support to family businesses, particularly within the fish and chip sector, to help them with marketing their businesses and raising their profile in the competitive takeaway, out-of-home food market.
Within the partnership there are two key teams, the purchasing team and the marketing team. Directors and Senior Managers from the three member companies work together within these forums to drive forward the shared brands and individual family businesses.
