80th Anniversary Celebrations

This year, we celebrate our 80th anniversary, a significant milestone in any business and something to certainly be proud of. To mark the occasion, we threw an internal celebration on Friday 9th May.

A birthday lunch was put on for employees across our network of branches and National Distribution Centre.  With a team of over 1000 people and celebrations stretching from Southampton to Glasgow, this was no small feat.

Each branch chose to celebrate the anniversary in a different way, putting on delicious spreads and customising cakes for the occasion. Our Managing Director, Neil Davis, visited 4 branches and the National Distribution Centre, in order to share in the celebrations.

We wanted to recognise how important our employees have been to the business in reaching this milestone, by thanking them with a lunchtime celebration.

We celebrate this significant day with staff, customers and suppliers alike and would like to thank each and every one of them for being a part of both our history and our future.

Here’s to another successful 80 years!
