The new range covers dairy, deli, desserts, dips, drinks, fish, pasta and vegetable products, which are now available for delivery to London, Surrey, Sussex, Northamptonshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

The company recently opened a new chilled warehouse in Northampton to enable further expansion of its delivery area in the future.

Sam Guarino, the newly recruited chilled business development manager said, “Weekly orders have doubled over the past month, clearly demonstrating a desire for our chilled range. Our customers are seeking to save time and ordering complexity by reducing the number of individual suppliers, and this is particularly true in chilled. The expansion of our chilled offering, allows them to accelerate these consolidation plans and also provides a broad range of products from a variety of different suppliers.”

One of the first customers to order from Cotswold Fayre’s chilled range was EAT 17, with grocery stores in Walthamstow and Hackney, committed to selling ‘honest food’.

Giuseppe Deriu, store manager of EAT 17 in Hackney said, “We order weekly from Cotswold Fayre’s chilled range and are always intrigued to see the latest additions to the range.  We’ve been impressed with the recent range expansion and the updated product lines help us to avoid stocking the same set of products for months on end and allow us to stock a varied fresh range in store.
