Top Track 250

Family-owned food wholesaler Reynolds was hit hard by lockdown, with restaurant, hotel and catering client closures leading to some redundancies at the Hertfordshire firm. Its healthcare contracts stayed intact, however, and it supplied surplus food to charities and key workers. Led by managing director Tony Reynolds, 56, it also branched out into home deliveries for consumers during lockdown. It feels it is now well placed for recovery as customers reopen for business.
