Coventry-based IPP, one of Europe’s leading poolers of sustainable wooden pallets, has signed a contract extension with the Eight Fifty Food Group, the parent company of a £1.2 billion merger between meat processing giant Karro Food Group and household brand Young’s Seafood, two businesses it already operated with as separate entities.
In the past 12 months, the Eight Fifty Food Group has delivered almost one million pallets of seafood and pork products into UK supermarkets.
Now the company is aiming to streamline its pallet management process and improve operational efficiencies.
This will see a shift to a more automated method of dispatching pallets and a reduction in time spent on administration.
Gail Frost, head of procurement at Eight Fifty Food Group, said: “IPP actively help to suggest ways in which we can mutually benefit. We are delighted to be extending our relationship with them.”
Phil Storer, UK Director for IPP, said: “Our relationship with Eight Fifty Food Group is based on being open, transparent and collaborative and we’re very pleased to be continuing with them.”
