FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 24, 2017 | Richmond, BC – Albion Farms & Fisheries announced today that effective October 28, 2017 the company begins the distribution of meat and seafood to Vancouver Island customers via their Richmond, BC location. Danny Ransom, General Manager of Albion Farms & Fisheries states, “The goal is to streamline our distribution capabilities while removing any non-productive redundancy. Our customer surveys have told us that they want to have a complete protein solution on one truck. This is the next step in the evolution of our food service offerings.”
This new distribution strategy will provide Vancouver Island customers with more than just seafood. Now Albion Farms & Fisheries’ existing and new customers will have the convenience of sole source ordering of centre of the plate ‘full basket of meat and seafood goods’.
The current 740 Tyee Road, Victoria, BC location will be closing; however, all sales staff will remain the same as they operate remotely out of Richmond, BC.
“It is our intention to assist all of those affected by these changes with their transition to new employment or retirement,” adds Mr. Ransom.
A new 1:00pm order deadline will come into effect and the current six-day delivery schedule will change to five days per week. This new distribution practice will affect approximately 150 customers.
Current Vancouver Island distribution company, Coldstar Solutions, will serve as part of the local distribution of Albion Farms & Fisheries’ quality food service products. Albion’s existing fleet will be maintained, and the primary point of contact will remain the same as before. This means that island customers will retain the same service for a seamless flow of goods.
