Williamson Foodservice and the Really Garlicky Company cook up an improved service for customers!

Williamson Foodservice has teamed up with the Really Garlicky Company to ensure all their customers an improved service in the Highlands and Islands. By offering a full distribution service to the Really Garlicky Company, Williamson Foodservice has ensured that fresh stocks of all Really Garlicky products are available throughout their service area on a daily basis.

Really Garlicky approached Williamson Foodservice as they looked for ways to simplify their distribution systems and improve their business’s environmental footprint.

Gary Williamson of Williamson Foodservice said: “Its a real win-win-win situation! We are really excited about adding a premium product from the area to the extensive range already available through our distribution service across the Highlands and Islands. By avoiding the minimum order size, many customers will be able to receive Really Garlicky products on a regular basis when it was not possible before. With many of the products having a short shelf-life, for example the freshly prepared Really Garlicky Bread, our temperature controlled vehicles will ensure that it all arrives at the destination in first class condition!  All this adds up to more choice for people across the Highlands and Islands as they begin to see the full product range from Really Garlicky appearing on the shelves of their local store.”

Gilli Allingham of the Really Garlicky Company commented: “We are delighted that Williamson Foodservice is now the distributor for our products. Although they already supplied many of our existing customers, by adding Really Garlicky to the products they offer, we expect to extend our market and increase sales. It’ll also mean that our existing customers will receive their goods on a more regular basis than before – being a small company meant that our main distribution was limited to two days per week. With Williamson Foodservice, customers will be able to receive their Really Garlicky products several times a week.  And with Williamson Foodservice’s temperature controlled delivery vans, we have been able to reduce the packaging required to protect the product, and so lessen our impact on the environment.”

Gilli added: “We’ll also now be able to supply the catering sector with selected products such as catering packs of Really Garlicky Ciabatta, where short shelf-life and delivery challenges made it difficult before. And Williamson Foodservice customers will be among the first to receive our new season Really Garlicky Patagonian Purple garlic!”
