Having been based in Kent since its inception as Shearway Foods in the 1970s, Ardo UK opened its current site in Charing in 2000. The company was named Frozen Food Manufacturer of the Year in 2013 and won the Business Commitment to the Environment Category in the 2012 Kent Excellence in Business Awards.
The frozen fruit and vegetable specialist recently increased the size of the facility by more than 20 percent. The 16,826 sq ft new cold store features new loading docks able to accommodate double-decker trailers, space-efficient mobile racking and sensor-controlled, low-energy LED lighting. The extension takes the site’s overall storage capacity from 18,500 to 22,500 pallets covering a total of nearly 90,000 sq ft.
This expansion, combined with close proximity to Dover and the Channel Tunnel, as well as the M20 motorway, puts Ardo UK in an ideal location for international supply chain operations.
