At Fowler Welch, our customers are at the heart of everything we do and we strive to collaborate in ways that improve the efficiency of their operation and add value to the supply chain as a whole.
The changes to our facility in Teynham demonstrates how we continuously provide our customers with:
A committed and experienced team delivering results on a daily basis
Innovative and bespoke solutions that offer tangible results for our customers
Expertise and experience that allows us to link elements of the supply chain and create cost-effective packing solutions
High Quality Produce, Safely Handled, Every Time
Fowler Welch’s Teynham facility has a long established reputation of offering our day one for day one service of cross docking & consolidating product grown in Kent, or delivered from the region’s ports.
However, after listening to the needs of our fresh produce customers, our joint venture, Integrated Service Solutions (ISS), has delivered an efficient end-to-end supply chain solution.
The colocation of the state-of-the-art pack house with Fowler Welch’s extensive distribution network and expertise allows customers to be confident that they are receiving high quality produce, safely handled, every time.
Fully Equipped Warehouses
The completion of a 52,000 sq. ft. warehouse extension in 2016 increased the packing and ripening operation to cover 120,000 sq. ft. This has broadened the range of ripening and packing services available for a variety of stoned, exotic and soft fruits, from lemons and limes to kiwis and mangoes.
The facility now boasts a 70,000 sq. ft. of pack house including six ripening rooms that use humidity and temperature to safely ripen a range of fruits. The extension has created space for a further 2,500 pallets of rack storage for product to be stored in chambers of up to four different temperatures from 0°C to 10°C.
Consolidating the Supply Chain
Consolidating the supply chain under one roof shortens the supply chain significantly, improves efficiency and reduces food miles. In the past year the site has packed 8 million cases, a number which is expected to reach 10 million in the next twelve months.
By combining the ripening, packing, storage and distribution services under one roof, we delivered significant savings to ISS customers through a simplified chain. With over 100,000 pallets per annum, ISS is adding significant value to its customers.
