Banbury-based supplier, Valera, has played a key part in the latest outfit for butcher chain, Tariq Halal Meats.

The meat wholesaler recently opened up its sixth branch in Greater London, in Croydon, and asked Valera to quote for the counters and other chilling equipment for the store.

The supplier was duly awarded with the contract and helped to design and supply all the required kit.

With fabricator, Unitech Industries, having supplied Tariq Halal with stainless steel fabrication since its first store, this gave Valera the opportunity to work with its sister company.

“Valera and Unitech Industries are both part of the Unitech Group so it was fantastic for the full group,” commented Valera’s marketing manager/area sales manager, Kurran Gadhvi.

The scope of supply comprised all meat and butchery display counters from Jordao’s Columbus range and its Primus multideck, Scandia coldrooms and freezer rooms, an Arneg four- glass door freezer and Daikin air conditioning.

Unitech then supplied all stainless steel cladding, fabrication, sinks, tables and more.

Valera carried out the full installation over 8 weeks, from 1 March to 25 April, on schedule for the store’s opening.

The supplier is already putting together new designs for new Tariq Halal Meats sites, as the wholesaler is looking to franchise further across the UK and Europe. Furthermore, Valera is also receiving lots of other enquiries from delis and butchers.
