Bernard Matthews has appointed Norbert Dentressangle to manage its frozen and seasonal fresh national storage and distribution operation.
Dentressangle is providing frozen and chilled storage and consolidation services within its shared cold stores at Easton and Lowestoft and is responsible for the picking and delivery of orders to around 500 delivery points throughout the UK and Ireland, typically on a day one for day two basis.
It has invested £1.5 million in new facilities and is employing advanced communications and order tracking systems to provide operational transparency and control.
Richard Hall, Bernard Matthews’ supply chain general manager said: “Norbert Dentressangle put forward a highly compelling solution, supported by robust and detailed operational plans.”
Norfolk-based Bernard Matthews Farms was established in the 1950s and now employs more than 2,000 people, farms over seven million turkeys each year and supplies a wide range of fresh and frozen turkey products to many of the major grocery retailers and foodservice providers.
