Introduction 

Founded in 1998, Norwest Foods International Ltd. set its ambitions high with the desire to become a market leader in the import and export of fresh and frozen meat. Whilst our initial trading activity focused on trade between the UK and the EU, this approach combined with our reputation, experience, and reliability, has allowed us to build a strong and reputable presence trading across all continents.
