Adelie invests £4m in Heathrow NDC

Adelie Food is to open a £4m national distribution centre measuring more than 100,000 sq ft at Prologis Park in Heathrow.

The distribution centre, 1.6 miles from Heathrow Airport and close to junction 4 of the M4, will be fully operational from September.

Rick Kovac, Adelie supply chain director, said: “The new facility at Prologis Park gives us the opportunity to create a state of the art distribution operation that will enable us to provide a fantastic working environment for the team, drive operating efficiencies and, most importantly, enhance the level of service we deliver to our customers.”

In addition to the national distribution centre, Adelie will be opening a standalone distribution site in Scotland in the next few months and has also introduced a new 80 strong fleet of fuel efficient vehicles supported by an extensive programme of driver training.

Adelie, founded in 2006, was acquired by HIG Capital in March. It provides fresh sandwiches to retailers, coffee shops and food sectors, delivering up to a million fresh sandwiches every day.
