Added Value Services

At Rick Bestwick we focus on establishing partnerships with our customers. By listening to and working closely with them, we have developed a comprehensive portfolio of added value services to streamline processes, and reduce cost, product handling and food miles.

We know from our own experience in food manufacturing that packing requirements are often bespoke, so our portfolio allows you to cherry pick the services you require, bringing together your unique requirements in an efficient operation.

Available services include:

  • Product Sleeving
  • Date Coding & Labelling
  • Contract Packing
  • Co-Packing & Re-Packing
  • Product & Pallet Weighing
  • Metal Detecting
  • Product Inspection including OVS Inspection
  • Export Services including OVS Team for Export Documentation

Through our complete range of food services, we are able to up-temper finished retail packed goods, sleeve, date code, pack, pick and distribute to the retailer, bringing you cost, efficiency and operational benefits associated with not having to return your products to your production facility for onward despatch.

From the opening of our first coldstore in 1998, we have set ourselves apart from other cold storage providers as we understand the logistical challenges encountered from production to distribution. Our staff are trained to deal with distressed product loads, including loads that have slipped during transit. Our flexible and proactive approach ensures that product quality is not compromised and pallets are re-worked so they can be receipted and stored safely, ready for onward despatch.

With BRC approved sites in Chesterfield, Scunthorpe, Warrington and Liverpool, over 1.5 million square feet of warehouse space, over 200,000 pallet spaces and a long‑term partnership with DFDS, one of Northern Europe’s largest logistics companies, Rick Bestwick can provide a complete solution.
