Premier Logistics secures food distribution contract

Leicestershire’s Premier Logistics has secured a contract with Market Harborough food supplier The Blueberry Group.

Trading as Fosters Traditional Foods and The Foodfinders, The Blueberry Group owns a number of renowned brands, including popcorn range Propercorn.

It operates from a 100,000 sq ft facility with 110 staff and despatches up to 25,000 products per year.

Premier Logistics, part of the Pall-Ex network, will be the sole provider of the group’s domestic palletised freight distribution as part of the initial 18 month contract.

"We’ve made a strong start to the year with several new contract wins," said Premier Logistics sales director Mark Steel.

"We are delighted to have secured this partnership with The Blueberry Group, in the face of stiff competition."

Laura Shears, managing director of The Blueberry Group, added: "I believe that the service provided by Premier Logistics and the Pall-Ex network will enhance our customer offering, which has steadily increased and diversified to meet growing customer demand."
