Some of the summer's top social events are approaching fast, and this means extra business and tight delivery windows for Express foodservice, which supplies products to upmarket events in the London area.
At Chelsea flower show, Henley Royal Regatta and Buckingham Palace garden parties a full range of Arla products will be available. There is also a chance that tennis fans at Wimbledon could enjoy Arla cream on their strawberries this year.
First comes the Chelsea flower show, taking place for four days at the end of May. It is supplied annually with fresh milk, cream, butter and yogurts via London's Nine Elm's depot.
It's time for strawberries when Henley Royal Regatta sets sail for five days from June 30. So lashings of cream are needed - clotted cream for strawberries as well as whipping and liquid creams. Arla's fresh milk, butter and yogurts are also enjoyed by those attending the amateur rowing competitions held on the Henley Reach of the Thames since 1839.
Arla Foods UK plc is home to some of the UK’s leading dairy brands including Cravendale, Lurpak and Anchor.
