Multi temperature UK and Ireland supply chain and logistics specialist, Oakland International, is gearing up to showcase its inclusive UK and Irish supply chain solutions at FOODEX 2012 being held at the NEC Birmingham from 25-27 March.

With their Midlands operation based at Redditch, Oakland International MD, Dean Attwell, stated: “This as a key national show linked with The Food & Drink Expo and the National Convenience Show, and importantly it’s based here in the Midlands.

“Foodex is for the whole food service industry and it’s a great opportunity for Oakland International to showcase our complete supply chain solutions offer. We’re delighted to be part of it.”

Oakland International’s comprehensive consolidator and distribution experience in the UK and Ireland also extends across to Europe with producers and suppliers in countries such as France, Germany and Italy capitalising on the firm’s extensive supply chain services.

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.
