Gressingham puchases new coldstore

The Gressingham Group continues to grow its portfolio with the acquisition of a cold storage facility, Hemswell Coldstore.

Hemswell Coldstore is a modern facility based in Lincolnshire. Housing up to 5000 pallets of frozen produce, it prides itself on its green credentials.

“We are delighted to bring Hemswell Coldstore into The Gressingham Group,” comments William Buchanan, Group Director at Gressingham Foods. “The collaboration made perfect sense, as we already have links with Hemswell through Reids of Norwich, another company within the Group. Having a coldstore helps streamline our distribution chain and operations. We are really looking forward to working with the team at Hemswell.”

Stephen Hill, General Manager at Hemswell Coldstore commented “We started Hemswell Coldstore in 2011 and have since taken this from startup to a market leader within the sector, delivering large-scale operations within the UK and around the world. Selling to Gressingham Foods is a great fit for the company and I am confident that with Gressingham’s huge expertise in the industry, Hemswell will go from strength to strength. The future looks bright for our employees, customers and suppliers.”

Hemswell Coldstore holds an AA grade, the highest accreditation for food safety standards from the British Retail Consortium
