We are proud to announce that ACS&T has been awarded a three-year contract extension with Kara, the Foodservice brand of Fletchers Group of Bakeries, the UK’s number one fresh and frozen bakery group.

This new agreement will see us manage all outbound storage and frozen distribution channels from Kara’s Manchester manufacturing site into foodservice wholesaler Bidvest 3663.  

Collecting direct from Kara’s production line, we will store all palletised deliveries at our Wolverhampton site, where we will pick and despatch up to 300 pallets per week of Kara’s famous range of frozen bakery products, including burger buns, speciality breads and teacakes.

Our two companies have a working relationship spanning several years, and the new agreement consolidates this partnership explains Kevin Shaw, supply chain manager at Kara.

He said: “We have formed an excellent relationship with ACS&T and regard them as a valued partner.  They align to our supply chain philosophy of cost, quality and innovation and have consistently exceeded our expectations in terms of service, delivery and quality.

“They are forward thinking in their approach, and bring us innovate ways of working that enable us to service our nationwide distribution network through Bidvest 3663.  That’s why we’re pleased to extend our commitment to 2017.”

Kara’s brand boasts a diverse frozen range and expanding portfolio with a variety of products, flavours and sizes to satisfy customer need, including floured, seeded and plain baps, hot dog rolls, sandwich carriers, teacakes and various other products for the Foodservice market.

Our business development director Mike Rice added: “We have a strong understanding of Kara’s network requirements and we use our long experience in the foodservice sector to be as responsive as possible.

“We are proud to count a market leading brand like Kara among a number of recent new contract wins and renewals.”
