Containers aid imports

HP Ethnic Foods, the brand owner of HP sauce and Lea & Perrins and also a leading supplier to the Chinese and Indian markets, has selected TDG to support its continued market growth. The two-year warehousing and distribution contract, previously with TNT, is based at TDG’s largest site in West Hallam, Derbyshire.
