Confex has shown +8% growth in gross sales value for the half year to June 2019 across its top 20 suppliers spanning retail and foodservice. Martin Williams, Confex Chairman said: “Confex growth is being driven by the Food to Go category. New product categories such as natural energy and protein are being welcomed by the Confex Wholesaler, giving them a point of difference as the local wholesaler of choice. The Confex wholesaler has always been focused on service and so the diversification of their product range is symbiotic with their customer demand.”
Confex recently welcomed its 27th new member in DW Carlisle Wholesale, based in Northern Ireland. Confex has now added £189 million to its Group buying power in 2019 and has aggressive plans to maintain growth this year and beyond.
