Stancold Named The Preferred Food Factory Fit-Out Partner For Taste of the West

The Food Projects team at Stancold are proud to be named the 2024 Preferred Food Factory Fit-Out Partner by our friends at Taste of the West.

As a Southwest-based company since our founding in 1946, we value working with food producers in this region. That’s why we place such a strong emphasis on our partnership with Taste of the West, the area’s leading collective of food producers.

Established in 1991, Taste of the West works to support and promote the incredible food manufacturers and providers of the Southwest. Over their thirty-year history, their logo has come to symbolise food-producing excellence.

Last year, Stancold sponsored the Sustainability Award at the Taste of the West Awards and chose Westaway Sausages as the winner for not only their environmentally conscious production methods but for going above and beyond with finding and implementing the most sustainable method for packing their delicious sausages!

Stancold is proud to continue the partnership this year and is excited to have been chosen as the Preferred Food Factory Fit-Out Partner for 2024. As we are based in Bristol, Stancold is right on the doorstep of Taste of the West’s members, so our location plus our Food Projects Team’s 80 years of combined food facility experience makes us the perfect solution for Taste of the West members’ whitewall and cold store enquiries.

Whether it’s to help build an entirely new factory extension or just to have a look at a small section of whitewall panelling that could use some remedial work, Stancold can be the first call for Taste of the West members.

‘As a company proud of its West Country roots and passionate about supporting local producers, growers and innovators,’ says Stancold’s Managing Director Andy Croxton, ‘we are delighted to be working with Taste of the West to share our decades of expertise and knowledge in Food Factory design and construction to help its members achieve their business ambitions.’

Stancold has established a very communicative relationship with the team at Taste of the West, as we both prioritise supporting the region’s food producers to allow them to do what they do best, manufacturing the highest quality food products in the entire United Kingdom.

‘We are delighted to be teaming up with the wonderful people at Stancold again this year,’ says TOTW Chief Executive John Sheaves, ‘the partnership is so strong and really demonstrates what can be achieved through collaboration. As we grow our cooperative of food businesses here in the Southwest, we are definitely better together!’
