Barton picks up business
The Barton Meat Company has announced that it has secured five new contracts since the completion of its management restructuring last year.
Barton was fully integrated into foodservice company 3663 First for Foodservice at the end of 2007. Under the leadership of managing director Sean Hallows, the management team, which includes sales director David Hilling and financial director Matt Sanderson, has since secured contracts with BUPA Care Homes, Barlett Mitchell, which manages prestigious sites in London including the Royal Thames Yacht Club, Sotheby's, and a leading pub and restaurant chain.
"I wanted to create a flat management structure that allowed senior management the opportunity to find out directly from customers what was important to them," said Sean Hallows. "And it's working. The increased focus on key customer issues, such as product provenance, quality and service as well as direct access to senior team members, has already led to a number of new accounts for Barton."
As part of the restructure, Barton Meat Company has also fully integrated its technical, quality and safety control systems with that of parent company 3663. "The closer relationship with 3663 allows us to benefit from their technical expertise and dedication to top-quality products and services," said Hallows.
"Barton Meat Company has a strong name in the industry. Now, as part of 3663, we will build on that good reputation, but also work in partnership with our customers to deliver results that go beyond what you would expect of a national company."
