Nisa Retail has agreed a new five-year contract with leading UK food export company Ramsden International.
The new contract represents an extension to the longstanding trading relationship and sees potential to deliver £200m of sales over the five-year duration.
Akhtar Zahid, Managing Director at Ramsden International, said: “Ramsden International is thrilled to extend our relationship with Nisa whose expertise and scale has and will continue to be valuable to us.
“Our partnership with Nisa is key to accelerating our global ambitions and gives us the flexibility and levels of service that ensure we continue to deliver the best possible service to our customers.”
The relationship between Ramsden International, which supplies an extensive range of products to more than 650 customers in 133 countries, and Nisa is a long-established one that has been forged over many successful years. The decision to renew the contract on a five-year deal was driven by Nisa’s strong service levels and wide product range. In addition, global export exclusivity for the award-winning Co-op own brand product range, that features over 2,400 product lines, is core to the growth ambitions for both partners.
“Nisa has demonstrated and exceeded expectation throughout our working relationship, through jointly incorporating and developing many bespoke procedures and always being open to review further mutually beneficial service enhancements”, said Mr Zahid.
“Nisa has worked closely with the team at Ramsden International for many years now, and our comprehensive understanding of its unique business profile has helped to share a class-leading trading solution that mutually rewards respective parties and delivers maximum benefits,” said Nisa’s Head of Sales & Corporate Development, James Roberts.
“Through this partnership, Ramsden International retains access to a market-leading offer of over 16,000 SKUs and exclusivity of export to 2,400 trusted Co-op own label lines, further helping both parties enjoy unparalleled synergies.
“After more than a decade of building the strong trading relationship we have with Ramsden International, we are delighted to have agreed the extension of our contract and are excited to be a part of the group’s growth going forward.”
