With operations in Australia, New Zealand, China, and Singapore, Safco is a strong supplier of a range of commercial-quality products to the hospitality and quick service restaurant (QSR) sectors. This exciting acquisition sees ECF Asia Pacific expand into new regions, further solidifying their position as Asia Pacific’s leading hospitality and care supplier.
Becoming a part of ECF Asia Pacific will provide Safco access to a broader and more comprehensive product offering, larger inventory depth, digital tools, and access to global group support. Utilising ECF Asia Pacific’s sophisticated distribution network and broad product offering will enable Safco to expand their proven expertise in QSR, a growing and important market segment.
