Leicester operator moves from Today’s to Landmark

Leicester wholesaler Gilsons Foods has taken the step of switching groups because of its proximity to Dhamecha’s latest branch.

A family owned business, Gilsons Foods had been a member of Today’s Group since the C&C/wholesaler started trading in 1991. However, when Dhamecha, that group’s leading C&C member, opened “round the corner”, it decided that it was in its best interests to change allegiance and switch to Landmark Wholesale.

The company, which operates from a 20,000 sq ft depot, is headed by managing director T (Tara Singh) Gill.

Cash & carry accounts for 85% of its £14 million turnover and delivered trading the remainder. The product range includes grocery, licensed goods and tobacco.

Commenting on the new member, Landmark’s managing director Martin Williams said: “Gilsons is highly respected, with a fantastic track record locally.”

Gilsons is Landmark’s third new member this year. The others are Bournemouth-based Country Fare and north London operator Esin Cash & Carry (EDA Quality Foods).
