Oakhouse Foods is one of the leading providers of quality frozen meals and desserts, delivered direct to the customers’ home. Over 65s account for nearly a fifth of the UK population and are the fastest growing consumer group. An ageing population equals an increase in age-related conditions requiring help on a daily basis and an increase in the demand for services to help the ageing population which, in turn, increases the demand for private provisions.
To facilitate the explosive growth, the home care and related services markets are currently estimated at £5.2 billion and are only going to grow to keep up with the unprecedented demand.
Oakhouse Foods has been established for over 25 years and operates a proven franchise business model which is loved by customers for its extensive range of quality food and friendly, personal service.
