The firm is switching nearly 60 of its 72 light commercial vehicles to new Volkswagen Crafter models, using custom-built models for its nationwide deliveries.
Working with Coolkit and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Natures Menu has designed and adapted the fleet of vans, including equipping them to reach temperatures of -18 degrees making them fit for the safe transportation of raw, frozen food to ensure that pet food does not thaw during transit.

Ben Puckey, transport manager from Natures Menu, said: “We have been working with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles for some time now and have been really pleased with the reliability of its vans and excellent service. With our business reliant on high-quality vans, it’s imperative that we trust the manufacturer with which we work.

“Thanks to the flexibility of the vans and the expertise at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, we have been able to introduce the perfect new vans into our fleet. We chose the Crafters because of the flexible load space. It is the ideal vehicle to modify with the technology we need to keep our products at a suitable temperature.”
