Ambient Pallet Height Standardisation

The Foodstuffs' companies wish to advise our supplier base of the implementation of a 'maximum ambient pallet height requirement' for all ambient products delivered into distribution centres and retail stores.

Over the past 14 months we have been evaluating the opportunity to introduce a maximum ambient pallet height to gain further benefits in the area of transport and DC storage volumetrics for all ambient product supply.

We have consulted with the FGC and our many suppliers and do acknowledge that this change will require some further consultation with a small number of suppliers. The revised policy attached will help to clarify the one SKU, one pallet rule.
