A recipe for success
Food supply chains are highly regulated and very demanding, including compliance and liaison with port health authorities and other national regulatory bodies.
Metro plan and manage international transport and logistics for ambient and temperature-sensitive food products, for leading global brands, including the world’s best known cereal brand owner.
Metro is responsible for the management of a large proportion of the exports from the UK, Belgium and other mainland European factories by sea and air, with over 10’000 containers moving in 2018.
On the inbound side Metro’s team manages the movement of bulk raw ingredients and production machinery, which is subject to continuous refinement.
In 2019 Metro developed new supply chain solutions to support the successful launch of new Turkish and Egyptian facilities.
