Since the start of the year, Confex has seen group sales rise by 23.84% in volume and 32.47% in value.
Confex has also welcomed seven new members in the year to date: Lakeland Dairies (Cumbria), Pennine Distribution (Lancs), Adams Foodservice (Bradford), Roys (Norwich), DMG Wholesale (Walsall), Ferrantes Foodservice (Bristol), and Magna Foodservice (Hounslow).
In addition, sales of the group’s own brand CORE, which was launched in 2022, are forecast to top £10 million by the fourth quarter of the year. There are 350 SKUs currently available, and range development continues.
Following Confex’s trade show and awards ceremony in March, the group is planning a dedicated Foodservice Fair, which will be held on 13 September at Stratford-on-Avon racecourse. This will be followed by the Confex Conference, which will take place in Lanzarote the beginning of October and will include a record number of member businesses.Published Date: May 23, 2023
