Palmer and Harvey, the UK’s leading delivered wholesaler, has signed a rolling agreement with One Stop to become the official supply partner for chilled products.
Palmer and Harvey has been supplying One Stop’s chilled range since April 2013. The deal sees One Stop continue to handle its own buying, ranging and selection, while Palmer and Harvey delivers the range to over 650 stores across England and Wales.

Palmer and Harvey, which operates a responsive nationwide distribution facility, will support One Stop with deliveries of up to six times a week.
Tony Reed, CEO of One Stop, said: “We operate in a highly competitive environment so it’s important that we have a reliable supply chain, especially with products that have a short shelf life. We have been particularly pleased with Palmer and Harvey’s excellent service levels and dedicated account team support in providing our stores with the flexibility required to meet demand.”
Andy Maclay, director of sales (distribution) at Palmer and Harvey, said: “We are delighted to have agreed this new partnership with One Stop.
