Providing The Highest Quality Products And Service.
Phoenix Brands have been baking biscuit products since 1998 and have been at our current site in Wolverhampton since 2017 and employ 40 people.
Between us, we have a wealth of experience in baking biscuits and managing a well-run, efficient business dedicated to the highest standards of customer service and flexibility.
We are proud to say that we will go the extra mile to give our customers what they need when they need it as we know that not everything goes according to plan and sometimes an unexpected order has to be made urgently
