Lending our Support to the Daisy Appeal

Posted: February 02 2015

Heron Foods is a family owned discount food retailer based in the East Riding area of Yorkshire, dedicated to bringing customers the very best value in frozen, chilled and grocery products.

The company operates from a 270,000sqft purpose built facility in Melton, East Yorkshire and serves 242 stores in the North of England and the Midlands. The company employs over 3,000 people.

The first Heron Foods store opened in 1979 on Holderness Road in Hull. In February 2003, the company changed hands and was taken over by the present management team of Andrew Heuck Purchasing Director, David Heuck Finance Director and Michael Heuck Property Director. In 2012, Heron Foods acquired 54 Cooltrader Stores from Iceland.

Heron Foods was ranked 155th in The Sunday Times Top Track 250 (12 October 2014) and was ranked 11th by turnover in The Grocer magazines survey of the Top 50 independent grocery retailers (15 March 2014).

David Heuck, Finance Director says: “Heron Foods is delighted to support the Daisy Appeal – a great cause for everyone in East Yorkshire and North East Lincolnshire.

“This campaign touches everyone in the local area. The work the Daisy Appeal is doing to save local lives by giving people in our communities more accurate diagnosis to cancer, heart disease and dementia is phenomenal.”
