Who we are

How OakRA began

OakRA is the brain child of Shaun Foley, the Oakland Group MD, borne out of the desire to reduce cardboard waste whilst looking at food distribution through a completely new lens.

Following industry research and product development into the optimum material to use and smart tracking solutions, the reusable container concept was launched.

The OakRA name came about as a marriage of Oak to represent the Oakland International parent company, along with RA for Returnable Assets.

Through our sister companies we can offer a full packing and distribution service for the most complex of collated orders for a multi temperature product range.

We can also provide customers support via a dedicated customs clearance company – EORI (UK) LIMITED
