IPL Product Procurement

We procure products for five key areas; Edible Produce, Houseplants & Flowers, Beverages, Nuts & Dried Fruit and Protein.


Edible Produce    

From fruit and vegetables through to salads.

Our Head Office in West Yorkshire focuses on a number of products including grapes, salads and stone fruit, whereas our site in Kent packs berries, citrus, melons and top fruits.

Our sites in Cambridgeshire and Scotland concentrate on the packing of potatoes and onions.        


Houseplants & Flowers

Asda's full range of bouquets and potted plants.  


We work closely with our growers to ensure the proper measures are taken when cropping, watering, transporting and storing plants.    

At our purpose built Houseplants & Flowers operation in Peterborough, we assemble bouquets for everyday use as well as for holiday events such as Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day and Christmas.        



We source wines from all around the world.


We are Asda’s largest wine supplier, currently sourcing and supplying Asda with the equivalent of almost 100 million bottles of wine each year, including exclusive brands, producer labels and own brand.

We adhere to the highest technical standards and have also successfully sourced a number of award winning wines. 


Nuts & Dried Fruit

A wide variety of snacks and cereals.


We source and pack a range of products for Asda, including cereals, snacks, desserts and ingredients for baking. We source directly in bulk format from 25 different countries, allowing us to focus on quality and providing us with greater control and transparency of the supply chain.

Our dry packing facility at Telford handles over 40 million packs per year and allows us to efficiently pack in various retail formats.



Asda's full range of cooked meats and bacon.

In 2016, we successfully completed the acquisition of Forza and Kober, two of the largest meat processing facilities in the UK. Forza and Kober are wholly owned subsidiaries of IPL with both sites continuing to operate as separate companies.

The acquisition allowed us to expand our supply chain offering to include cooked meats and bacon; helping us to deliver additional savings for Asda customers.
