Elveden takes over Tastes of Anglia distribution service
The Elveden Estate has acquired the local food distribution arm of Tastes Of Anglia, which it will merge with its own Food Hub operation.
Elveden, which also runs retail and farming operations on the Norfolk-Suffolk border, said it would now offer a “more comprehensive service” to both supermarkets and independent retailers across the region.
Tastes of Anglia’s membership-funded food group is unaffected by the move and will continue to trade separately.
“Joining these two businesses will enable us to deliver a much more efficient and cost effective sales and distribution solution across East Anglia, while allowing the Tastes of Anglia food group to focus on promoting the region’s excellent food offering throughout the UK,“ said Elveden Food Hub manager Natasha Card.
“For retailers in the region, this opens up a wealth of opportunities to understand the full range of local food on offer and simplifies supply, while for local food producers they will have access to an improved distribution network and a wider range of retailers from just one hub.”
