Sales at Fairway Foodservice’s latest ‘Meet the Member’ event in Tamworth, Staffs, reached £917,000, bringing the total for the two such occasions this year to £2.1 million.
More than 40 suppliers supported the show, including Unilever and chocolate distributor HB Ingredients.
Marketing and events manager Richard Ellison said: “Our Meet the Member events continue to surpass previous meetings. The continued development of the relationship between members and suppliers is also evident in the deals concluded.
“There is a genuine feeling among those that attend that everything is in place to benefit everyone in the room, from quality products and enticing deals to education and innovation.”
Fairway members also approved the addition of MS cod fish fingers and fish cakes to the own-brand range as well as a dispenser for clingfilm.
The social side included clay pigeon shooting and bowling.
Group turnover last year was £801.5 million.
