UK - Swedish frozen bread product supplier Lantmännen Unibake UK has selected Norbert Dentressangle as its new chilled distribution provider to one of its major customers.

Dentressangle will provide a daily collection service from Lantmännen Unibake UK’s manufacturing site in Milton Keynes as well as supplying 15,000 pallet spaces in its state-of-the-art cold store in Easton.

The contract is in addition to Dentressangle’s existing work as a complete frozen logistics provider to Bakehouse, in whom Lantmännen Unibake is a majority stakeholder.

Lantmännen Unibake UK’s Production Director, Graham Wright said:

“Norbert Dentressangle gave us every confidence in their ability to serve the demands of a fast-moving, highly seasonal storage and distribution operation and to provide a solution which could not only flex but also grow with us as we continue to expand our product range. Through its existing partnership with Bakehouse, Norbert Dentressangle was also able to offer some operational synergies and an extremely competitive commercial arrangement.”
