BWG Foods' Value Centre has completed a €2 million investment programme in its South Western network.
The investment programme included the development of an enhanced distribution network, the expansion of chilled and frozen facilities and the implementation of new technology solutions.
Value Centre’s regional foodservice hub in Cork saw its chilled food facility double in size, as well as seeing a complete refurbishment of its frozen food facility, trebling its capacity. The company has also added to its existing delivery fleet, with the introduction of 12 new multi-temperature trucks.
The implementation of Value Centre's new E-Order online ordering system was a key part of the investment. As a result of the upgrade, over 1,800 chilled and frozen products are now available through the online ordering platform.
Commenting on the investment, John Moane, Managing Director of BWG Wholesale Division said, “Value Centre’s south western operation continues to go from strength to strength, supported by two major investment projects at our Cork and Killarney centres in the space of 12 months.
"We believe growth follows investment and the fact that this development now allows us to deliver chilled, frozen, and ambient products promptly to any business in Kerry is evidence of that.”
Malachy Galvin, Manager, Value Centre Killarney also commented; “This investment is very exciting for us and hopefully demonstrates our commitment to the local economy. We’re adding a new extension for delivered business and we have also refurbished the front entrance so customers will notice improvements."
