Today’s Group Wholesalers success at SWA

Today’s Group member, United Wholesale (Scotland), has been named the best wholesale business at the prestigious Scottish Wholesale Achievers awards and Failte Foods has won Best Delivered Operation for Foodservice.

United Wholesale (Scotland), which operates depots at Queenslie in the east end of Glasgow and Maxwell Road in the city’s southside, fended off stiff competition from businesses the length and breadth of Scotland to win the sought-after Champion of Champions accolade, this year sponsored by JTI.

The wholesaler also won three other categories: Best Symbol Group for Day-Today; Great Place to Work, sponsored by Britvic Soft Drinks; and Best Marketing Initiative, sponsored by Premier Foods.

Judges praised United’s efforts for displaying “consistently high standards in a variety of areas” and “excellence in diversity”. Andy Stevens, JTI’s head of sales UK, described the wholesaler as the “clear winner” of Champion of Champions, stating: “It is evident that Scotland’s wholesalers are developing over time and improving the level of their offering.

Today’s member Failte Foods picked up best Delivered Operation for Foodservice.

Bill Laird, MD of Today’s Group said “It was an outstanding night for Asim Sarwar and his team at United Wholesale Scotland. Sweeping the board in key categories including Best Symbol Operator with Today’s Day-Today fascia and receiving the accolade of ‘Champion of Champions’ was a fitting end to a great evening for all associated with UWS. We are delighted that Jim Cummiskey of Failte Foodservice fought off stiff competition from major national operators to win the award as Best Delivered Operator, Foodservice, which was a terrific achievement. This latest clutch of awards follow the previous success for Today’s members at the FWD Awards in late November where our wholesalers also dominated the shortlists and took a third of the major prizes on the night. ”
