Fowler Welch takes Quorn’s ambient logistics

Manchester, UK: Quorn is using Fowler Welch to provide deliveries of its new ambient range to Tesco and Asda stores.

Deliveries start this month from Fowler Welch’s Heywood, Greater Manchester site, pictured above.

The development is Quorn’s first step away from chilled and frozen meat-free products.

Christophe Evo, head of logistics, Quorn, said: “The relationship between Quorn and Fowler Welch has developed from being a simple transactional-based collaboration into a close working business relationship over the last 12 years.

“The Heywood site offers a unique solution across the ambient supply chain and this, in combination with its outstanding customer service, makes Fowler Welch the obvious choice in helping Quorn take this exciting next step.”

Fowler Welch started working with Quorn Foods in 2007. Nick Hay, chief executive, Fowler Welch, said: “We have enjoyed a long and successful partnership with Quorn since it joined our operation, initially at the flagship site in Spalding and more recently from the state-of-the-art distribution centre in Nuneaton.

“The company has enjoyed steady growth in volume and overall delivery profile ever since and we are delighted to be supporting Quorn as they move into the ambient sector.

Hay said: “Fowler Welch always strives to gain a full and holistic understanding of customer requirements so we can become an extension of their teams. The communication and reliability demonstrated by our colleagues every day is what gives us a competitive edge and helps us build strong, lasting partnerships.”
