Chiltern Turns 25!

on March 01, 2018 .

This year Chiltern will be reaching a significant milestone - 25 Years In Business. 

Paul Jackson, Managing Director said: “The first 25 years have been a roller coaster of experiences, highs and lows, opportunities, challenges, and rewards. During this time I have seen many changes in the industry and I’m sure there are many more to come. But, I am very proud of what we have achieved - coming from a little cold store in Eaton Socon I could not have imagined what was to come.  For me it has always been about being the best we can be.  Chiltern has been a lifetime of work and would not have been possible without a long list of exceptional people working along side me to make it all happen".  

As Chiltern continues to expand it’s services and reputation in the industry - let’s look forward to the next 25 years.”
