Howard Hunter, MD of Coulton’s Bread Ltd, comments:

“This is an exciting time for us all at Coultons Bread as we look to grow our 3rd party logistics of bakery products at this very challenging time in bakery. Margins have been really squeezed by the supermarkets and this has led to the larger brands looking for a more cost effective solution to distribute their products to the growing convenience sector. Having trialed the business model with Allied Bakeries for over 12 months now at our 4 other depots, we have shown that this is a more cost effective way of getting the products to the stores without the need of bakeries sending their large vehicles many miles from their bases to reach a wider audience.”

Allied Bakeries is one of three divisions of Allied Milling and Baking, which in turn is part of Associated British Foods plc. Their household brands include Kingsmill, Burgen, Allinson and Sunblest
