A malted ingredients firm has taken delivery of two new lorries and trailers.
Edme, based at Mistley, near Manningtree, said the new Mercedes vehicles would enable the firm to deliver around 8,000 tonnes of its malted and unmalted ingredients to bakers and food manufacturers around the UK.
“The extra capacity will help us meet the growing demand for wholegrain – and malted wholegrain - flours and flakes,” said director Michael Carr.
Transport manager Lynne Smith said while many firms outsourced all their deliveries, EDME had its own fleet.
“The recent investment reflects the fact that customers in the food industry value personal service from drivers they know, who care about the products they are delivering,” she said. “We have fantastic drivers, who (literally) always go the extra mile for customers. You couldn’t ask for a more dedicated team.”
