Ryvita contract for Bibby

Ryvita has awarded its UK transport contract to Bibby Distribution.

Bibby will run the transport operation using a shared user vehicle fleet, managed from a 140,000 sq ft facility in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire which is also the hub of warehousing and transport activities for sister company Jordans.

In May 2010 Bibby bought Taygroup which was running logistics operations for cereal manufacturer Jordans. 

Paul Jaggard, head of supply chain for the Jordans & Ryvita Company, said: “The baton was passed seamlessly between Taygroup and Bibby and this has ultimately given us the confidence to develop the relationship further.

“Since the merger of the Jordans and Ryvita brands, the demands we make of suppliers have inevitably grown; it is important to work with suppliers that will face these requirements head-on and work alongside us to achieve further operational improvements.”
