The four-acre site with a completed building of 40,000 square feet – spread across three floors – will comprise frozen, chilled and ambient storage, as well as progressive office and welfare spaces for R D Johns’ growing team to enjoy.  The project is currently in construction and on track to be operational by the end of the year.

R D Johns has been trading for more than 50 years and has grown to be a leading foodservice provider and proud local employer.  The company now stocks more than 5,000 product lines which are available for next day delivery to hospitality venues, schools, colleges and universities, and care homes throughout the West Country.
