There has been a big trend recently in the development of Farm Shops by longstanding historical farms around the outskirts of Peterborough. Leading the way is Moor Farm of Newborough.

The heritage of Moor Farm dates to the Neolithic times, it is known for its outstanding quality meat and homegrown produce as well as being the perfect spot for an afternoon tea! Their working site stretches across 600 acres of arable and pastoral farmland and much like CaterFix, they hold family values to be the foundation of their business.

CaterFix has been delighted to work closely with Moor Farm over the past year. Their tearoom uses produce grown on their own land, ranging from free-range, grass-fed, Red Tractor assured meat, which is fully traceable, being born and bred on their own land, to locally made jams, fresh seasonal vegetables, homemade cakes, freshly laid eggs, and much more! They are also an English mustard grower for Colman’s.

CaterFix has been established since 2000, supplying new and reconditioned catering equipment as well as a service and repair section. Customer satisfaction has always been held highly at CaterFix and can be shown through the approach to all our jobs. “Regarding repairs and providing us with second-hand equipment, the service has been exceptional…” Judith from Moor Farm commented. “Your staff are kind and approachable, obliging… 10/10 for them”.

The design of the kitchen was to utilise the space available to achieve several different culinary functions from a quick afternoon tea to a full Sunday roast. The Rational Combi Oven leads the way in offering the capacity for all the shop’s customer’s varying tastes.

Equipment Installed and Supplied:

A combination of new and good quality reconditioned equipment was selected from CaterFix to keep costs down but to ensure reliability. Foster, Rational, Samsung, and Lincat were just some of the suppliers used to source equipment. “In the future, we will continue to go with CaterFix and the great local service they offer,” Judith commented.

“We wish Moor Farm all the best and CaterFix will be right here to support the farm as they grow their business over the following year”, Ajaz Akhtar, Managing Director of CaterFix, commented.

Caterfix birthday celebrations at the Bull Hotel with owner Ajaz Akhtar and his team.

CaterFix is a Peterborough based company specialising in servicing, repairing and selling new and reconditioned commercial catering equipment. First founded by David Iacono in 2000, in 2017 former Foster UK Sales Manager Ajaz Akhtar took over, moving locations to Padholme Road East. Since then the company has experienced good growth and expansion, looking after over 400 customers across Cambridgeshire and the South East of the country

Last Friday CaterFix celebrated it’s 21st anniversary at The Bull Hotel Peterborough. The evening was filled with live music, a three-course meal, company quizzes with lots of prizes and presentation! Local Guests from: Peterborough United, Banyan Tree, Brewery Tap, Charters Bar, Moor Farm and many others joined us in celebrating this landmark date.

Over the past 21 years CaterFix has flourished into a thriving local business that takes great pride in providing its customers with a superb, fast and friendly service. CaterFix’ 900 square foot warehouse has been organised into a fantastic arrangement of labelled new and reconditioned catering equipment, featuring products from Foster, Hobart, Lincat, Blue Seal, Rational and more – all displayed on our new and updated e-commerce website.

Whilst the company’s services and operations have expanded, CaterFix’ underlying principles have remained the same. Ajaz Akhtar, Managing Director, says: “It’s not the bricks and mortar that makes up a company, but the people you build your team with”. CaterFix’ members talk about how working at CaterFix is “not just a job but like working with your family” with “family values being held so high”. We are looking forward to the next 21 years!
