GERMAN food giant Dr. Oetker has renewed its contract with a North Yorkshire family firm to provide all of its UK cold storage and distribution needs for the next three years.

The company, which produces a wide selection of baking and cooking products, is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of frozen pizzas with its popular ‘Ristorante’ and ‘Chicago Town’ brands.

Boroughbridge-based Reed Boardall began working with the group, whose UK head office is in Leeds, 15 years ago and has again been selected by Dr. Oetker following a competitive tender.

Andrew Baldwin, managing director of Reed Boardall’s cold storage division, said: “To have retained the business is testimony to the fact that what we do for Dr. Oetker is great for them .”
