"I first worked with Abbas and the Reach Food team back in my Zuma London days in 2002; I have continued to work with him in every restaurant I’ve opened since, in London and Dubai. He has exclusively supplied my baby squid, soft shell crab and black cod since then, and in all that time I have never once had to question the quality, service or commitment of his team. Look forward to working with him for another 18 years! Colin Clague, Chef Patron - Ruya Dubai & London

We are impressed with the incredibly high levels of customer service (I haven’t worked with a better supplier for this) and how quick Reach have been to offer solutions to any needs we are having in the business. This means not only do we work with Reach as a supplier for food and packaging but, for frozen storage and even as a courier for our home delivery service. Can’t fault them!

I have worked for many years with Abbas and his team; from Nobu to Roka and currently at Proud. Reach has an incredible product range from pastry to sushi grade fresh fish and seafood. Their customer service is definitely the best in town. Always ready to help or solve any issue. For any product not in stock or in their range they will try their best to find it and help you out. Shout out to Debby who answers my crazy product request even at 10pm. Well done and massive thank you to Abbas, Debby and the team.
