Uniq sandwich deal for NFT

Chilled and frozen food producer Uniq has awarded NFT a three-year contract to distribute sandwiches to Marks & Spencer.

Uniq produce an average of 250,000 units a day, which NFT will deliver through its network capability.

Anthony Quinn, logistics manager at Uniq Northampton, said: “When we sought to strengthen our partnership with M&S through improvements in the supply chain, NFT stood out as the logical choice to handle our distribution.

“With really short life products and a short lead ordering profile, it’s essential that we have a logistics partner who can consistently deliver the freshest products in a time critical environment.”

The British Sandwich Association estimates that the UK market for sandwiches bought on the go is currently worth £2.8 billion, equating to 1.7 billion sandwiches.
