Greenyard Fresh UK and packing specialist Produce Logistics have signed an agreement to work closer together.
Produce Logistics is now operating directly from the Greenyard Fresh UK distribution centre, and benefits from Greenyard ripening and packing products on their behalf, the two sides explained.
The collaboration is not new, and the two companies based in Spalding have worked together closely for many years. However in recognition of how well the collaboration has worked, they have moved to cement the relationship with a formal agreement.
The firms said the new agreement 'underlines the importance of a company like Greenyard Fresh UK, providing to partners highly efficient specialised ripening and packing resources.' It ensures UKcustomers also benefit from receiving their fresh produce, expertly packed in the tightly controlled conditions of Greenyard’s state-of-the-art packhouse facility, it added.
They stressed this means the whole operation is more efficient, meaning the customer can have even more confidence in the quality of the produce.
Bill Mathieson, managing director of Greenyard Fresh UK, said:“Thisis a great opportunity to collaborate and benefit from the respective scale and efficiency this arrangement will bring to our operations. As a result, this will allow us to continue to support our key customers with great service, quality and value.”
A spokesperson for Produce Logistics added:“We see this as a great way to collaborate operationally to help achieve sustainability and meet our customers’ expectations.”
