CJ Lang moves up to the No.3 spot in Advantage Group report

Scotland’s SPAR wholesaler and retailer CJ Lang & Son has moved up five places to the No.3 spot in the latest Advantage Group report.

More than 200 suppliers participated in the annual survey, which identifies strengths and opportunities for suppliers and their customers to build better engagement and better commercial results.

The suppliers evaluated the performance of CJ Lang and a peer group of 11 other businesses within the wholesale and convenience sectors. These were AF Blakemore/Blakemore Retail, Appleby Westward, Booker Retail Partners (including Budgens and Londis), Booths, Costcutter (excluding Nisa/Co-op), Hendersons, James Hall, JW Filshill (KeyStore), McColl’s, Nisa Retail, and SPAR UK.

The wholesalers were rated on business relationship, personnel & organisation, category & business development, operational execution, supply chain management and payment processes.

Commenting on CJ Lang’s progress, trading director Richard Collins said: “This survey, undertaken by The Advantage Group, is a key barometer as to how well we are collaborating with our suppliers.

“As a business we are continually listening to our customers, retailers and suppliers and their feedback is what shapes our future action plans to deliver on our expectations and drive growth in our business.

“The result we have achieved this year is testament to the people across all areas of the business, and a huge thank you should go to everyone. Despite our success we have already identified further opportunities, from the feedback received, to drive us forward to the number one spot next year.”
