Parfetts Cash and Carry rounded off a strong year with both positive financial results and industry recognition.
Over the last 12 weeks of the financial year, trading was 10.5% up on like-for-like sales and 18% up (excluding tobacco) compared to 2016.
For the whole year, Parfetts have traded 5.5% up year-on-year in terms of total business.
To add to these positive figures, Parfetts were also the proud winner of ‘The Independent Retailer’s Favourite Cash & Carry Wholesaler’ at the HIM! Wholesale Awards.
The award was decided by 4,000 retailers and 3,500 foodservice operators.
Parfetts Operations Director, Andy Whitworth, said: “As this was voted for by retailers rather than a panel of suppliers or industry experts, this recognition is especially important to us. It clearly reflects that the hard work and effort from our employees is welcomed by our retail customers.”
For the fifth year running, the respected business relationship monitor document ‘Advantage Report Mirror’ also placed Parfetts top in their category.
They were rated highest against other wholesalers and wholesale groups by customers and suppliers independently surveyed.
