KMB Shipping helps Kudos Blends navigate international shipping challenges

Learning the ropes when it comes to exporting has not always been easy. Thankfully, Kudos Blends has a fantastic logistics partner to assist with this difficult task.

KMB Shipping Group https://www.kmbshipping.co.uk/ was established in 1987 to provide superior quality export and transportation services across Ireland and the rest of the world.

As evidence of just how good they are, they were awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2021 for excellence in international trade earlier this year. It is an accolade that they truly deserve and we are delighted for them.

KMB Shipping Group has been partnering with Kudos Blends since 2016 and has proven to be incredibly helpful as well as providing a first-class service. With their help, we are now exporting to 23 countries around the world. They have also helped us navigate the minefield of export documentation and regulations post-Brexit – not an easy task to have accomplished, as anyone in the industry will understand.

As Kudos Blends continues to expand internationally, our partnership with supply chain companies is imperative to get right so that we can continue to offer the first-class, professional service our customers expect.

The recent collaboration with US bakery ingredients company Thymly Products Inc., is just one such partnership that’s proving to be a huge success, with sales growing for the benefit of both parties.

Health initiatives at the forefront of Central American companies such as Mondelez, Grupo Bimbo and Gruma means that supply of our KODA™ Potassium Bicarbonate is increasingly needed in order to achieve sodium reduction targets in their baked goods without sacrificing product quality. This is supplied through our trusted partners, Lallemand in Mexico and Aromatic in Peru.

KMB’s current owners, Paul Hull, Kevin Jones and Jamie Warren, undertook a management buyout two and a half years ago. They all joined the industry straight from school, showing just what can be achieved with hard work and dedication. Congratulations to the team. A truly fantastic result!
