January 2019


I trust you enjoyed a good festive season and I’d like to give you my best wishes for 2019.

I am very pleased to be starting a new year for the company after such big changes taking place during 2018.

We’ve now undertaken the biggest re-organisation of the business I have ever seen with our exit from the cash & carry market in 2018.

We can concentrate upon the remaining parts of the company to enable us to compete more strongly in an increasingly competitive food market.

Many members of staff were heavily involved in making these big changes ensuring a good outcome for the company.

We have embarked on the next phases of our development over the last few months. 

We’ve conducted an in-depth review of where our strategic priorities lie for the next five years and we’ve made a good start to running and managing the company on the basis of one company rather than on our previous divisional lines.

So I’m greatly looking forward to 2019 when we can really get back to our main purpose of improving the business and giving our customers an even better service.

Thank you and happy New Year.
