Confex holds first Foodservice Fair to reflect growth in membership

Confex recently held its first ever Foodservice Fair.

“With the foodservice membership growing and also the launch of award-winning CORE own-brand in the past two years, the buying group felt it was time to stage a foodservice focused event and it was a huge success,” explains marketing & HR director Jess Douglas.

The event, at Stratford Racecourse, included presentations from Confex’s MD Tom Gittins, chairman Martin Williams and senior business manager Matt Norman, as well as some members and suppliers.

The audience heard that sales through Confex are up by 58% in the year to date and that it is predicting 200% growth over the next three years. Meanwhile, sales of the CORE brand hit £1.89 million in 2021 and are on course to rise to £4 million this year.

The Foodservice Fair also incorporated a trade show, where 37 suppliers showcased their products. “The fair was extremely well received, with positive feedback from all,” said Douglas.
