Contract packing and distribution specialist joins BCMPA

Distribution specialist, Oakland International, firmly established as an outsourcing partner of choice, has joined the British Contract Manufacturers and Packers Association (BCMPA), the official voice of the contract packing and manufacturing industry within the UK.

With contract packing requirements both seasonal and all year, business growth in this sector is providing a major focus for the firm’s 2013 sales strategy as they move forward.

Oakland International MD, Dean Attwell, commented: “The association plays a key role promoting outsourcing within the industry, and we are delighted to become a member, with our accreditation positive recognition for customers that they are dealing with a skilled partner.”

Oakland International’s diverse contract packing operation across ambient, chilled, frozen food and non food lines continues to experience positive growth and encompasses frozen to tempering solutions, date coding and re-sleeving in temperature controlled conditions, overseen in-house by their BRC accredited quality assurance division.

Rodney Steel, CEO of the BCMPA, commented “Contract packing is set to grow dramatically in 2013 and fits neatly as an integral part of the wider logistics offering provided by Oakland International. We are delighted to welcome them as BCMPA members.”

With high levels of productivity demanded to fulfil exacting standards to meet customer’s fixed delivery schedules, Oakland International’s business strength in this all year contract packing sector is derived from its inbuilt flexibility designed with seasonal surges in mind.
