About Elite Foods

Based just outside Liverpool, Elite Foods was established over 30 years ago by Terry Crosbie. After working for years within the docks and ports, he learnt  the industry of importing. He knew the people, the work and grew in confidence to start and grow something special.

From a simple idea, Elite Foods has grown from strength to strength and built a strong reputation and firm relationships.

The company is now led by Ryan, Terry’s son who with his passion for food, has taken Elite Foods to the next exciting phase.

Ryan’s ambitious plans have seen new relationships being formed on both a national and international basis. Ryan has given Elite Foods a refreshed outlook keeping his heritage and his team at the heart of the business.
