Site Reconfiguration for Fruit & Vegetable Distribution

Riverford Organic

Background

Established in 1986, Riverford Organics is the largest independent producer of organic vegetables in the UK and is currently supplying vegetable boxes to over 40,000 homes per week. 80% of their produce is grown at their main farm and HQ in Buckfastleigh, Devon.

Process

Riverford contacted the Food Projects team at Stancold about a site reconfiguration project which involved relocating existing cold stores, extending chiller areas and creating a new hygienic corridor.

Project Delivery

Stancold worked with the client over extensive on-site consultations to understand their requirements for the site reconfiguration fully and accommodate their business needs with a new optimized facility layout. The smooth and timely completion of this project resulted in Stancold being appointed for the second development phase.
