Corby Shop

the company shop story

Company Shop began as a wholesale business over 40 years ago, supplying irregulars to institutional outlets. In 1985 the business evolved to adopt the model it still uses today, establishing a membership based shop at its Tankersley site and factory shops for staff located in manufacturing premises throughout the United Kingdom.

The business is focused on protecting brand values through a controlled method of disposal of residual product, and the provision of an environmentally efficient solution for produce that is not only more cost effective than landfill but a more ethical alternative.
