The Challenge

Sheffield-based Approved Food is a fast-growing online discount retailer, founded in 2008, specialising in selling short-dated food and drinks across the UK and Europe.

In 2009 founder Dan Cluderay started getting a lot of publicity which, at the time, was difficult for his site to handle. Approved Food needed a fast, reliable hosting provider to cope with huge traffic spikes during national TV appearances.
