Co-op now stock our Sausages & Burgers21/01/16
We’ve had a “sizzling” start to the new year after winning a contract to supply more than 160 Co-op food stores across Wales with our award winning sausages and burgers.
We anticipate that this could create up to three new jobs as a result of the deal with the Co-op which will see us supply an estimated 1.5 million sausages to them this year!
In addition to our Traditional Pork Sausages – made to an award winning 30 year-old recipe, we will also supply our Welsh Beef Steak Burgers to the community retailer.
Simon James, Managing Director of Edwards of Conwy, said: “It’s great news, very exciting and our first contract of this scale with a convenience retailer. It opens up new and important markets for us.
“Because of our shared community-based values we are proud to supply the Co-op and satisfy the increasing demand for our locally produced, high quality produce by bringing a part of our award winning butchers shop to Co-op stores across Wales. “Both our links with Welsh farming and the creation of employment and training opportunities for local people are important to us and our work with the Co-op will further support this.”
Simon Dryell, Ranging Manager for the Co-op’s food stores in Wales, said: “Edwards of Conwy is a great Welsh success story. We both have a heritage of supporting our communities along with a passion for great food so we are delighted to be working closely with them. Our convenience stores are located in the heart of Welsh communities and his is a further step in the Co-op’s commitment to offering more locally sourced produce conveniently.”
