Republic Technologies has presented its 2020 Wholesale Awards, which acknowledge wholesalers and cash & carries that have ‘gone above and beyond to drive the tobacco accessories category in-depot’.
Gavin Anderson, head of sales at Republic Technologies UK, said: “Our partners have shown real commitment when it comes to driving sales, during what has been a very challenging 18 months for the industry.
“We’ve been celebrating the performance of our cash & carry and wholesale customers with these awards since 2015 and, due to restrictions, we weren’t able to present our 2020 awards last year, so being able to present them now in-person has been really important to us.”
The categories and award winners are:
Outstanding Achievement Award – AG Parfett
Wholesaler of the Year – United Wholesale Grocers
Delivered Wholesaler of The Year – Rayburn Trading
Majid Wahid, buyer at United Wholesale Grocers, said: “We’ve worked really closely with Republic Technologies for a number of years now, and winning Wholesaler of the Year highlights the strength of that relationship.
“Between the supplier takeover weeks, new product launches, expert category analysis, merchandising support and excellent product availability, we’re confident that we’ll continue to grow together for the foreseeable future.”
