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.
