Cash & Carry Management’s AWARDS (annual wholesale achievement reward & development scheme), now in their 12th year, recognise and reward the very best standards of service given to cash & carries and delivered wholesalers in England, Wales and Ireland.

This complements Cash & Carry Management’s involvement in Scottish Wholesale Achievers, which runs exclusively in Scotland.

In December 2015, at the prestigious venue of Danesfield House in Buckinghamshire, Cash & Carry Management held its exclusive AWARDS lunch.

A short business session, with the theme ‘Loyalty and the Cash & Carry Customer’, took place before we announced the winners of our Top 10 Suppliers AWARDS. Speakers at the business session included:

– Hilary Nithsdale, trading controller – retail own-brands at Today’s Wholesale Services
– Tom Gittins, business development manager at Confex
– Anthony Cox, general manager at Danesfield House Hotel
– Kirsti Sharratt, managing editor of Cash & Carry Management
