Nuts, dried fruits and confectionery firm Zeina Foods has boosted its cold storage capacity by 70% following a £1.7m investment in a new cold store.

Located opposite the family-owned firm’s factory in Ossett, West Yorkshire, the new 30,000 square foot purpose-built cold room now houses a selection of the company's dried fruits and nuts, Middle Eastern pastries and chocolate.

Investment in the new store has provided significant environmental benefits for Zeina Foods, which has been able to reduce its carbon footprint, extend the shelf-life of some products and reduce its need to outsource supply, which has often led to waste.

Zeina Foods started importing Iranian pistachios in the 1980s and is now a leading supplier of nuts, seeds and dried fruit to the UK market.

It has also started to diversify​ into other product areas such as stuffed dates and baklawa on the back of growing interest from UK retailers and caterers.
