Birds Eye picks Norbert for Lowestoft contract

Birds Eye has chosen Norbert Dentressangle to handle storage and supply of packaging and ambient raw materials, along with on-site shunting operations into its Lowestoft manufacturing complex.
The food manufacturer operates four factories in Lowestoft producing around 120,000 tonnes of frozen vegetable, chicken and fish products every year.  They are also increasingly manufacturing products for export to Europe.
Dentressangle is providing storage for up to 3,500 pallets of packaging and ingredients such as seasonings and coating and transporting these into the manufacturing operations.
Craig Hamilton, general manager for Birds Eye’s Lowestoft operations, said: “At Birds Eye, Lowestoft we are keen to establish and develop strategic partnerships throughout our supply chain. Working with companies that can bring expertise, while driving service, innovation and cost savings are crucial to our long term success. We believe that we have a long term opportunity to develop further and sustain a strategic relationship with Norbert Dentressangle.”
Under an existing contract, Dentressangle is also responsible for the storage and supply of frozen ingredients to Birds Eye’s Lowestoft manufacturing facilities. In total, the company delivers around 30 loads per day into the factories in a 24/7 operation. It is also responsible for management of the Birds Eye’s pea processing plant in Hull.
