Overview

Mars Wrigley is the world’s leading chocolate, chewing gum, mints and fruity confections brand. The organisation responsible for iconic brands such as M&Ms®, SNICKERS®, Skittles® and EXTRA®. Available in more than 180 countries, these snacks are made with sustainability in mind. From investing $1bn in a new cocoa supply chain model that favours smallholder farmers, to reducing its carbon footprint by using renewable energy (in the manufacture of M&Ms®), Mars Wrigley is committed to its consumers, the planet and the population.

Aligning philosophies – quality and sustainability

When it comes to its supply chain and fulfilment partner, it focuses on those same characteristics – quality and sustainability. Which is why it partnered with Fullers Fulfilment to deliver its orders across the UK. With a rich heritage of its own in the food & drink sector , working with brands such as Bombay Sapphire, Newby London and Chalfont Products, Fullers understands the complexities and requirements of Mars Wrigley’s business and created a customised fulfilment solution that perfectly meets its needs.

Purpose built facilities supported by latest technology

From its 5-star fulfilment warehouse in Slough, Berkshire, Fullers ensures Mars Wrigley’s orders are processed, picked, expertly packed and delivered. The ambient warehouse was designed specifically for food items requiring a dry, room-temperature environment to ensure quality standards of the products are maintained.
