In November 2014, Thornton’s tapped Food & Drink Resources (FDR) to develop a pizza platform from scratch. They needed a firm that could work with multiple suppliers and provide finished samples, which is precisely what FDR does.
Jessica Williams, Fresh Food Product Development Manager for Thorntons, described the project as, “…very involved with a lot of potential directions as the outcome.”
Why Thorntons Chooses FDR
FDR has hundreds of contacts across the food industry and experience with many chains, which, Jessica said, “made FDR the perfect choice.”
“Richard and the team were incredibly easy to reach at any time, willing to travel to us in Kentucky, and invited us to their facility. I definitely recommend their expertise and partnership.”
FDR worked as an extension of the Thorntons team to develop the pizza platform, which launched just six short months after the start of the project.
