Dean added: “Our focus is still on helping small and medium sized UK and Irish producers access retailers, wholesalers, discounters and convenience outlets across both markets, but we also have a growing demand from European operators thanks to our competitive chilled fixed case distribution rate offer, delivery of unrivalled lead times and the significant cost advantages we offer making us a prime food distribution partner for those looking to deal direct with Irish and UK retailers.”

 A major UK show for food processing, packaging and logistics, this year promises to be even bigger and better than before, and is seen as a must attend event for any company in the food and drink supply chain industry.
