The group has welcomed seven new members this year – Holland Bazaar, Exotic Blends, Plant Love Organic, Apollo Distribution, Direct Source Distribution, One World GB and Just A Bargain – taking the total number of members to 219 with a combined turnover of £2.46 billion.

Despite the challenges arising from the pandemic, Confex has continued to invest back into the business. Projects launched include Sales Out Data Insight with TWC, Food 2 Go, EAT magazine, EDI and the CORE own-brand. There is also a D2C website in the pipeline.

Tom Gittins, managing director of Confex, commented: “I am proud of the way Confex wholesalers have responded to both COVID and Brexit. The group is now in a much stronger position, solidified by our wholesalers’ individual investment plans at record levels.

“Confex has used a difficult trading period to push forward with implementing our long-term strategies for growth and stability across our 219 member wholesalers and I am very proud of all the head office team, and our members’ teams, in the work and results which have been achieved.’’

Confex has pledged to become carbon neutral certified as it approaches its 50th year anniversary in 2022, with some exciting plans and events planned to mark the occasion.
