Pie-maker Peterís targets south east

11 January, 2011

Pie producer Peterís has opened a 45,000sq ft multi-temperature distribution depot to help it expand its distribution operation in London and the south east by more than 20%.

The new facility in Sidcup has improved office and conference areas and increased storage and picking facilities for frozen, chilled and ambient goods. A purpose-made loading bay allows eight 7.5 tonnes dual-temperature vehicles to be loaded simultaneously.

Neil Court-Johnston, MD of Peterís Food Service division, said: ďOur new depot should be seen as a powerful illustration of our commitment to growth.

ďOur ambition is clear Ė to develop the Peterís brand within foodservice, work harder to ensure that we always meet our customersí needs and grow our business through new sales channels. Our new distribution hub in Sidcup will play a pivotal role in helping us to achieve these objectives.Ē

The new hub replaces Peterís Greenwich depot, which was sold to make way for the Olympics development.
