3663 open new Swithenbank Fresh & Fine Foods depot

3663 has opened a new purpose-built depot for its Swithenbank Fresh & Fine Foods specialist business to support growing demand in the South East region.

Opened on 5 January in Hoddesdon, the chilled storage and distribution base accommodates a five temperature regime capacity, and a fleet of controlled-temperature branded lorries, ensuring customer orders can be prepared depending on their business type and activity.

Andrew Tiplady, managing director of Swithenbank, said: "Our specialist foods, along with produce and fresh meat, have seen significant sales increases. The Hoddesdon depot will offer our business and the wider 3663 business the increased capacity needed to serve the South East, especially where fresh meat is concerned. This is a key part of our expansion plans, which will see more facilities come on-stream over the next 12 months.

"New facilities, technologies and controls at the depot will also ensure consistency and accuracy of supply for our customers so that products reach them in the highest quality, every time."

Under the 3663 umbrella, offering a wide range of specially selected fresh and chilled meat, fresh produce, chilled foods and fine foods, Swithenbank works closely with growers and producers from the best food provinces around the world. The company operates as a premium and specialist supplier within the 3663 foodservice family.
