Northampton-based Chilled Logistics operates across the whole of the UK and Europe with a 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 by the end of the year.
Tara Temniuk, depot manager at Chilled Logistics said, “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 Cotswold Fayre said, “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.”
Cotswold Fayre is continuing to grow its chilled business, with 275 chilled products from 30 brands now included in its portfolio. The most recent additions are a range of yoghurts from Glenilen Farm, Pegoty Hedge ready-made meals and products by Nutmeg and Hive.
