In 2009, J L Priestley built our own production facility in Jiansu province china .
The factory is around 40,000 sq ft and we are able to produce 4,000 metric tonnes of dry product per year from approximately 40,000 metric tonnes of the finest fresh vegetables.
This factory is equipped with the latest cleaning, metal detection facilities and we can pack and ship products in various pack sizes to most customer's requirements.
JLP have their own fleet of delivery vehicles which are purpose built for delivering only food products.
We are able to react to customers' urgent requirements and specialise in doing either weekly or monthly deliveries as our customers request.
In the UK JLP have just built a new 44,000 sq ft distribution centre in Sleaford, Lincolnshire whilst retaining a further 50,000 sq ft storage facility close by.
This means that once our customers contract with us a product is brought into the UK so that it is available for call-off as required by our customers.
This is always delivered in pallet loads, which are shrink wrapped and labeled with JLP batch numbers and customer batch numbers if required. One of the strengths of JLP because we do carry a stock we can normally react very well to customer requests.
