Hain Daniels Group: Fast-Track Solution

Hain Daniels is a major manufacturer, producing and selling food and drinks in chilled, ambient and frozen food categories.

We were appointed when Hain Daniels Group acquired Premier Foods jams’ spreads, and jellies business. They required a new logistics solution to support the storage and distribution of brands including Hartley’s, Sun-Pat, Gale’s, Robertson’s & Frank Cooper’s, from the manufacturing facility at Histon Cambridgeshire.

Our extensive experience in managing outsourcing and tender processes enabled us to help Hain Daniels select a single contractor for warehousing and transport. As a result the management of operations, inventory levels, and inter-site trunking were simplified and unnecessary costs minimised.

The project also defined the IT system responsibilities, interfacing requirements and the analysis of order and manufacturing data to determine the supply and demand centre of gravity. 

“While we recognised that it was a ‘big ask’, our key commercial objective was to ensure that we could implement the new solution within a short and limited timeframe. Davies & Robson’s logistics consultants just got their heads down and got on with it and used their experience to identify how we could take time out of the process without detriment to the quality or integrity of the project.

Both we and our chosen logistics partner have been impressed with just how organised and streamlined the process has been and I am confident that this will translate into a highly efficient logistics operation.”
