Group trading director Kenton Burchell commented: “It gave me great pleasure to pay tribute to individuals who have exceeded our expectations with their contribution to Bestway.
“Successful businesses are built with great talent, and this makes working together much more rewarding and enjoyable for everyone – and importantly helps us deliver real value to our customers and to the end consumer.”
The ‘Thank You Lunch’ followed ‘Thank You’ events in Bestway depots for retail customers, running over a two-week period and featuring value deals from 16 big-brand suppliers.Published Date: February 9, 2023
