About Us


Americatessen was founded in 1993 which makes us not only the oldest, but possibly the biggest importer of branded wholesale American candy, grocery and soda in the UK. These are the key brands from the United States, fashionable, affordable, and representing the “Real Flavours of America”.

The company is run by a very dedicated and professional team who draw on years of experience within the industry. We strive to deliver a personal service, supply top quality products that are genuine, and above all have an excellent sales record.

We do not have a minimum order, to us an order is an order, and no customer is too small. On orders below £500 we make a delivery charge, but we can deliver anywhere. We use a network of parcel carriers and freight forwarders who can access almost every corner of the EU. We select these for their levels of service, economy, efficiency and speed at which they can deliver.

We have always operated on a “Business to Business” basis, selling in wholesale quantities, but members of the public are welcome to visit by appointment.

Although we have had to withdraw several key lines due to government legislation and Port Health import regulations we still have access to over 8,000 food and beverage lines through our network of suppliers in the USA. We are more than happy to source any product and add it to our next order.

Possibly the biggest change in the retail food industry for several years finally came into force in December 2014. “EU FIC 1169/2014”, a compulsory new law that dictates all food and drink products sold throughout the EU must comply with a prescribed amount of information regarding ingredients and allergens clearly displayed on the packaging.

Americatessen is happy to announce that after months of research, new equipment, printers, software, and a team of “labellers” all our products are fully compliant with the law.

Please feel free to contact us for details.
