The Grain Store

Our Warehouses have been used to store a multitude of different products over the years.

One such warehouse currently contains extensive racking for palletised goods storage, but many years ago we used it to store grain.

Lighthouse

Debach are very pleased to be supporting the charity Lighthouse, who in turn support victims of domestic abuse here in Suffolk.

 

This amazing organisation support families, who have been affected by domestic abuse.  We have been able to assist their re-homing arm, by donating redundant (but new) domestic stock from the warehouse in Ipswich, which our customers are unable to sell due to packaging issues or end of line, and which otherwise would go for disposal.

 

If you would like to learn more about this great Suffolk charity or get involved with fund-raising or volunteering for them, have a look at their newly launched website: www.lighthousewa.org.uk

We have businesses based in both logistics and agriculture, so there will be many changes in legislation going forwards in both sectors; BUT we will find a path through the changes and continue to offer our customers the services they need to trade strongly here in the UK.

Interesting times ahead for the Westminster and the country.
