Somerville Retail Services and Coles have been working together to integrate Retail Ready supply of fresh meat to it supermarkets since 1998.
It all started with the first store located in Healesville on the fringe of Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, orders produced and delivered direct to store with refrigerated vans, 6 days per week.
During the Sydney Olympics in 2000, Somerville Retail Services was asked to supply retail ready meat to stores located in the Sydney central business district, within a small delivery window in the very early part of the day.
The same Coles stores continue to be supplied retail ready meat after the Olympics and many more stores have been added, making New South Wales another daily destination for Somerville Retail Services.
Nearly 20 years on and Retail Ready Meats is a component of the landscape and forms part of the extensive Coles supply chain covering the Eastern States of Australia, with products supplied nationally to over Coles 700 stores.
