Pinnacle Foods in new logistics contract

24 April 2014

Food logistics expert, ACS&T, has announced a new contract with specialist meat and poultry processors, Pinnacle Foods

Pinnacle Foods manufactures a wide range of meat, including chops, steaks, slices and joints, as well as minced products, under the Wilsons, Pinnacle and Brockhurst Farm brands. In addition to supplying to some of the leading names across the foodservice, retail and manufacturing industries in the UK, the company also exports to Europe, China, Hong Kong and South Korea.

The one-year deal will see ACS&T provide tri-temperature transportation and storage for Pinnacle’s pork products. Items will be collected from the Pinnacle manufacturing plant in Guildford and stored at ACS&T’s Wolverhampton site, before being distributed by the pallet load to designated wholesalers around the country.

Graham Reed, Managing Director of Pinnacle Foods, said: “Premium quality is of upmost importance in our industry and we rely on our logistics provider to ensure products are delivered in peak condition each and every time. ACS&T is an expert in this field and we are confident that the company will become a valuable asset to our supply chain.”

Mike Rice, Business Development Director for ACS&T, said: “Our new deal with Pinnacle Foods is the latest in a string of contract wins and extensions for ACS&T and demonstrates our growth over the recent months – we look forward to building a strong working relationship with the business over the coming year.”

In addition to holding BRC accreditation, ACS&T also holds both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 quality accreditations. These act as an assurance to customers that ACS&T applies consistent business processes and shows a commitment to both the sector and customer care.

ACS&T operates from four centres in Grimsby, Wolverhampton, Tewkesbury and Scarborough. Its extensive estates include 12 cold stores, three ambient stores, and large, dedicated and shared-user multi-temperature transport fleets.
