Fine food distributor, Cotswold Fayre, is developing its chilled operation by partnering with Chilled Logistics to extend distribution of its diverse range.
Chilled Logistics, owned by the Aktrion Group, is a temperature controlled distribution service, serving major food manufacturers. From its base in Northampton, the company operates across the whole of the UK and Europe with its fleet of temperature controlled vehicles.
Cotswold Fayre’s chilled operation will now be able to stretch as far north as York, reach Norwich, Portsmouth, Bournemouth and beyond Cardiff in Wales by the end of the year.
Tara Temniuk, Depot Manager at Chilled Logistics, says: “We are really excited to be adding Cotswold Fayre to our customer portfolio. Our service is of the highest quality and we believe that our experienced logistics team will help Cotswold Fayre’s chilled business expand a great deal by the end of 2017.”
Paul Hargreaves, chief executive at fine food distributor Cotswold Fayre, says: “The growth of our chilled business has previously been limited by our ability to scale up the distribution. However, this new partnership with Chilled Logistics, will allow us to deliver to our existing and new customers within a 125 mile radius of their base in Northampton, with plans to further expand in the future.
“Our customers are seeking to save time and improve the ordering process by reducing the number of individual suppliers. Our very low minimum order of £100 makes it easy for our customers to use us for consolidation of their chilled supply with a weekly delivery.”
Now with 275 chilled products from 30 brands, Cotswold Fayre is continuing to grow its chilled business. Most recently, the range of yogurts from Glenilen Farm, Pegoty Hedge ready-made meals and Nutmeg and Hive have joined the chilled range.
