Food-to-go business, Adelie Foods, is doubling its distribution capacity as part of a multi-million-pound investment. The company has introduced a new depot site in Cardiff and expanded two new sites in Haydock and Tamworth. The upgrades to the three sites result in an increase to both frozen and chilled capacity.
Tamworth is the biggest of the sites at 28,000 sq. ft, followed by Haydock with 25,000 sq. ft and Cardiff at 8,000 sq. ft.
Adelie Foods currently delivers to more than 34,000 accounts each week and has over 270 vehicles supplying its continuously increasing network.
The roll-out of Adelie’s new EPOD system is also underway across the whole distribution estate. This system will capture real time delivery data instantly and aims to provide a better customer experience.
Sean Glover, head of distribution, commented: “It’s an exciting time at Adelie as we modernise our depots and vehicle fleet, reaching more consumers than ever before.
“The investment will allow us to deliver to more locations and provide an even better level of service to our customers from all channels.
“Our distribution network is continuing to grow and the expanding distribution capacity across the three sites will help to facilitate further growth.”
Adelie supplies a range of retail and foodservice customers with own label products, including the sandwich brand Urban Eat.
