Launched in Worcestershire in 1998, ethical family business Oakland International has celebrated 20-years of successful trading with team members and their families at a family-friendly BBQ at Attwell Farm Park, Beoley on Saturday 15th September.
Oakland’s ‘double-decade’ anniversary marks an important business milestone for the company which originally began in egg production, and two-decades later is a major Redditch employer, operating hubs and facilities in the UK, Ireland and has an overseas partner in Spain.
Oakland International Co-Founders, Dean and Sallie Attwell commented: “As we look back and reflect on our two-decades in business, we are incredibly appreciative of the heritage of talent within Oakland and of the many accomplishments we have achieved together as a team.
“Continual investment in new generations of talented staff and investment in long-term business and partner relationships ensures we add value to the many customer services we now provide.
“A genuine and heartfelt thank you to every one of our team members, our customers, our partners, our parents and families as we wouldn’t be where we are today without their support. They have all helped make this possible, here’s to the next twenty years!”
Winners of numerous industry awards and accolades over the years, Oakland International today is a ‘double’ Queen’s Awards for Enterprise winner, for International Trade and Sustainable Development, and a BRC double ‘A’ accredited multi temperature distribution business delivering a vast array of specialist services in contract packing, storage, picking, tempering, distribution and brand development support to major retail, convenience, discount, wholesale and food service markets.
