A.F. Blakemore Welcomes Welsh Businesses on Study Tour

March 02, 2020

Study tour

In February A.F. Blakemore welcomed 20 Welsh businesses on a depot tour of Willenhall to introduce them to the company.

Category Controller Patrice Garrigues and Trading Manager Tom Gee led the visitors around the company’s chilled and ambient sites, with Operations Manager Dan Smith and warehouse colleagues supporting.

The visitors also enjoyed a presentation and Q&A session at the Village Hotel in Walsall, giving them an overview of the AFB Group and the routes to market for businesses, as well as information on how the company ranges and selects products and its commercial expectations.

The event was organised by Total Food Marketing, which coordinates the Welsh Food Group.

Patrice commented: “Some of the suppliers attending have never worked with a business like A.F. Blakemore before, and feedback was very positive.

“It also gave us the opportunity to engage face to face with potential new and existing suppliers in a more relaxed and informal setting.”
