NFT wins Stateside Food contract

Stateside Food, one of the UK’s largest chilled pizza manufacturers, has signed a two year primary distribution contract with NFT.

Using its shared user distribution network, NFT will collect more than 4,800 pallets each month and deliver them to 25 regional distribution centres, operated by major retailers including Somerfield and Morrisons.

The branded and own label products will be delivered on the same or following day.

Graham Thompson, purchasing manager at Stateside Food, said: “NFT has unrivalled 25 years specialist knowledge in the time-critical chilled food logistics sector. In the current economic climate, it is essential to work with a supplier that is highly experienced, reliable and has a strong financial track record.

“The transport solution is also extremely efficient and competitive, helping to minimise our environmental impact through increased load fill and efficient vehicle planning.”
