Logistics firm scoops deal to bring taste of Italy to UK market
National logistics, warehousing and courier firm The NX Group has recently secured a deal distributing for the UK division of a worldwide, Italy-based food and beverage company.
Toschi, a food products manufacturer established in Modena, Italy in 1945, distributes its range of syrups, glazes, toppings and balsamic vinegars worldwide. The company had previously been working with a Yorkshire-based distributor and had grown frustrated with the firm’s errors, poor distribution arrangements and slow responses. For Philip Rundlett, Managing Director of Toschi UK since its beginnings in November 2016, finding a logistics company with efficient systems and platforms close to the Midlands was key.
Since October 2018, The NX Group has taken deliveries for Toschi which contain a range of ice cream-based, gelato-based and alcoholic products. These goods are then distributed via the firm’s closed pallet network to small-to-medium restaurant chains, independent restaurants, coffee shops, gelato parlours and manufacturers across the UK. Prior to the goods reaching The NX Group’s secure warehouse, most are shipped to the UK from Italy, with some being imported from Belgium or produced in the UK.
Philip Rundlett says: “With spring around the corner, demand for ice cream and gelato will soon be on the rise and our peak demand period is fast approaching. We are looking to develop our business here in the UK, and we are working on incorporating ecommerce into our operations.”
Mark Moody, Commercial Manager of The NX Group, says: “We are looking forward to building our working relationship with Toschi over the coming months, focusing on continuing to deliver excellent customer service as Toschi enters its busiest time of year.”
Philip concludes: “The NX Group has met all our expectations so far, and is delivering an efficient service to us and on our behalf.”
