Peter’s Food Service opens new depot
Pie and sausage producer Peter’s Food Service has opened a 45,000 sq.ft distribution depot at Sidcup, south east London to act as a hub for the business’ sales and distribution operation in the South East.
The new facility is said to offer improved office and conference areas for the sales and customer service teams and significantly increases storage and picking facilities for frozen, chilled and ambient goods.
A new purpose made loading bay will also allows eight 7.5 tonnes dual temperature vehicles to be loaded simultaneously and efficiently.
The new hub replaces Peter’s Greenwich depot, which has been sold to make way for the Olympics development.
Peter’s Food Service Division MD Neil Court-Johnston said: “Our new depot should be seen as a powerful illustration of our commitment to growth. Our ambition is clear - to develop the Peter’s brand within foodservice, work harder to ensure that we always meet our customers’ 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.”
