A Bit About Us

COOK is a pioneering frozen food company, a certified B Corporation and one of the country’s top 100 Best Companies To Work For (38th this year). Our business is purpose driven and values led: we believe all companies should be seeking to make their business a force for good in society. 

We’re independent (family-owned) and always will be because it allows us to do things the right way, not the fast way.

Since 1997 we’ve been making remarkable food for your freezer, prepared by hand at our Kitchens in Kent (savoury) and Somerset (puddings) using the same ingredients and techniques you would at home. It means our food looks and tastes homemade (maybe even a bit better). 

We have 89 shops and counting across the UK; concessions in 450+ farm shops and independent retailers; and a fast-growing home delivery business.  

Our brand needs to be remarkable, handmade/homemade, foodie, honest and authentic, with a strong independent voice and look that enables us to stand apart from the supermarkets. 

We share 5% of our annual profits with staff.

We take immense pride and care in the work we produce and are constantly striving for new ways to engage and delight our customers – they are at the heart of everything we do.
