Oakland International support of Irish cheese makers goes from strength to strength

Oakland International support of Irish cheese makers goes from strength to strength

Oakland International, a multi temperature supply chain specialist chosen by cheese collaborative, Irish Cheese Direct, to store and distribute a range of cheese products to the Irish retail market, is continuing to see sustained growth a year on from its original launch with Irish food wholesaler Musgrave.

Coming together under the banner of Irish Cheese Direct, the cheese partnership made up of many well-known Irish cheese producers includes J&L Grubb (Cashel Blue), Wicklow Farm House Cheese, Inagh Farm House Cheese, Milleens Cheese, Mossfield Organic Farm and Carrigbyrne Farm House Cheese.

Richard Hill, Oakland International General Manager stated: “Irish Cheese Direct is an example of collaboration between competing companies working together to produce and deliver an attractive wholesale and retailer business offer.

“The cheese makers, under the banner of Irish Cheese Direct, use Oakland International to store and distribute their products to Musgrave and now to other multiple retailers.”

Providing Irish Cheese Direct with a single point of contact enables swift order response and accurate retailer supply through the use of backhaul; with no restrictions on order size and suppliers invoiced individually, the scheme successfully provides a one stop shop for retailers to receive a large range of supplier products.

The Key Account Manager from the Irish Cheese Direct partnership, Tadhg O’Donovan, stated: ” Irish Cheese Direct have been working with Oakland International since Sept 2010, during that time Oakland have demonstrated time and time again that they are more than a consolidator, they have demonstrated to us that they are partners in the true sense of the word; committed, flexible and in for the long haul.”
