Nestlé Professional partners with Brakes Group

West Hallam, UK: Nestlé Professional has joined forces with foodservice distributor Brakes Group with a plan to save a massive 82,000 road miles over the next 12 months. The two major hospitality brands will join forces across regional depot deliveries to cut out “empty” journeys.

The Brakes Group fleet will take responsibility for Nestlé Professional deliveries through Brakes Group’s distribution centre at West Hallam. Meanwhile Nestlé Professional will take responsibility for moving products from Brakes Group’s distribution centre in West Hallam and replenish products destined for Leeds.

Neil Stephens, managing director, Nestlé Professional says: “We’re absolutely delighted to be working alongside Brakes Group in this initiative, which is a significant move for a number of reasons. We see it as a signpost to the rest of the hospitality industry to encourage suppliers and operators to work together for the common good of the industry and the environment as a whole.

“We hope that other suppliers will follow suit, as not only is this right for the environment but there is a real benefit in a pure business sense – by using transport intelligently, we can all reduce cost and improve scale.”

Alison Townson for Brakes Group, adds: “It makes no sense, either commercially or environmentally, to have empty vehicles crossing the country and we believe this is the start of a much broader approach that we would welcome across the industry.”
