Leading Foodservice provider and CIS Excellence Awards supporting sponsor, Brakes, has marked the opening of its Newhouse depot in North Lanarkshire with an official ceremony held last week.

The  state-of-the-art, 170,000sq ft. site Scottish depot is part of a £125m investment the company is making into its UK operation over the next five years.

Featuring a purpose-built development kitchen for product demonstrations and menu planning, the new depot is accredited to ISO 14001 standards and employs around 340 staff.

Ken McMeikan, CEO of Brakes Group (pictured far left, with North Lanarkshire Council chief executive, Gavin Whitefield CBE; and Richard Lochhead MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs, Food and the Environment), said: ‘The opening of the Newhouse depot will help to streamline the supply chain to minimise deliveries, reduce reliance on fossil fuels and increase accuracy of orders while reducing administration time and costs.’
