To continue to grow a successful and profitable business, incorporating the values and ethics of an employee owned company, and to encourage a collective responsibility, that recognises the importance of the welfare and development of both employees and customers.

 

Parfetts Cash & Carry is a name that is renowned amongst retailers and caterers throughout the North West, as the region's foremost independent cash & carry.

The company supplies a comprehensive range of food, drink and tobacco lines, whilst achieving standards of quality, value and service that are unrivalled in the industry. This dedicated approach has ensured that Parfetts has grown steadily since it was first founded in Stockport in 1980. Now, three decades later, the company also has branches in Halifax, Somercotes, Sheffield and two Merseyside depots in Aintree and Anfield.

The company structure underwent a major change in 2008, moving towards becoming an employee owned business, with 55% of the shares sold by the Parfett family and now owned by an Employee Ownership Trust on behalf of all the staff. The Trust are committed to buying the remaining 45% of the shares at a future date to achieve the aim of Parfetts becoming fully employee-owned. This is enshrined in the company's basic philosophy which displayed to the left.
