Londis reaps benefit of centralised chilled distribution

Killarney: ADM Londis, the Irish grocery retail group, says its retailers report an average turnover growth of 60% following the introduction of centralised chilled-distribution earlier this summer.

The effect of the chilled programme was detailed at the ADM Londis National Retailer Conference in Killarney this week. Londis announced Phase II of the programme, “a major strategic shift for the group and its retailers” that enables Londis retailers to place their chilled orders directly with ADM Londis through the Group’s ISIS web platform and receive these products in a single delivery.

The latest phase of the chilled programme sees the Londis product line grow to approximately 1,200 with brands such as Muller, Galberts, Clonakility Blackpudding, Irish Yoghurts, Glenisk and Carroll Meats now available to Londis customers nationwide.

Stephen O’Riordan, chief executive, ADM Londis, said: “The immediate impact of the centralised chilled distribution programme has been felt right across the Londis family, with retailers, suppliers and of course customers all benefiting.

“Our Londis retailers have identified to us in the 2012 ADM Londis Retailer Survey the vital importance of customer retention and consequently the demand for increased availability of private label products and accessibility of products on promotions for their customers.

“The continued rollout of the chilled programme will meet all of these retailer needs and will continue to benefit not just Londis retailers and customers but the wider economy as the knock on effects of our successful supplier relationships will be felt across their communities,” O’Riordan said.
