Musgrave Retail Partners GB has completed the roll-out of its Londis Fresh programme, which includes a new range of fresh products as well as major supply chain improvements.

The range, which was introduced for retailers in the north of England in May through its South Elmsall depot in West Yorkshire, has now been extended to the group's other main distribution centres in Andover and Thamesmead.

It is supported by a new warehouse management system that enables longer shelf-life for fresh produce in order to minimise wastage, and a new chilled delivery fleet that delivers to retailers six days a week. The wholesaler claims sales of fresh produce have doubled since the new system went live.

"I'm delighted that Londis retailers are now equipped with the tools, capability and delivery service to make the most of fresh food," said sales director Steve Lucas.
