Rick Bestwick Chesterfield Export Team win TCS&D awards for the Second Time

The team at Cold Store 3 won the award against stiff competition, for their hard work to achieve excellence in the face of huge increases in the demand for export services to China and the USA.

Orders for these services over the last year have dramatically increased, to China in particular after a successful tender for a key contract. The team faced many challenges beyond the increased workload; quality assurance and segregation of stock to meet the strict guidelines of the Chinese authorities prompted innovative solutions to difficult issues but the team prevailed, achieving BRC AA status in the process.

We’d like to congratulate the whole team for their achievement, which is extremely well deserved.

Plant Based Storage at Magnavale

Following extensive consultations with our partners, we have decided to become the first cold store network in the UK to offer segregated, temperature controlled, storage solutions specifically for plant-based foods.

There is a growing interest within the UK to reduce meat consumption, with plant-based products becoming increasingly popular, therefore it’s incredibly important we continuously evaluate how we can evolve our operations, allowing us to supply the services our customers need to keep up-to-date with the market.

We see this specific operational process as an essential addition to the already large range of services we currently offer.

Across our 3 sites located in Chesterfield, Scunthorpe and Warrington, our services include temperature-controlled storage for various food products, blast freezing, labelling, microwave tempering and more, therefore adding plant-based storage will help drive forward our business objective of being able to facilitate a supply chain that is as short as possible and cuts cost, complexity and risk.

The products will be completely segregated from any other food products, within our various BRC AA Grade, temperature-controlled warehouses, while being treated with the up most care from our brilliant, fully trained, OV qualified technical team.
