Re-pack 300DPI (003)The new system at Fowler Welch’s Heywood depot has been rolled out to help expand Tulip’s ambient range and reduce its food miles.

“Previously, Tulip was packing the product in Denmark, taking it to a supplier to repack in the UK, then picking it up to bring to its warehouse,” said Helen Broomhead, general manager at the Fowler Welch Heywood depot. “By co-locating the repack and warehouse activity for Tulip at our Heywood depot, we are reducing the steps in the supply chain and helping our customer reduce food miles and cost.”
