Landmark Wholesale says its new financial year has got off to a promising start with May’s sales +10.1% ahead of the same period in 2012.
The latest figures follow final results for the financial year to May 31, 2013 which were up by +22.8% compared with 2011/2012.
Managing director, Martin Williams said: “I am pleased that the new financial year has got off to a good start; it’s particularly encouraging in view of the continuing tough trading conditions. Our commitment to the independent sector remains as high as ever and we will continue providing promotions, products and pricing to keep us ahead of the competition.”
Meanwhile this month the group is promoting a range of award-winning wines to help retailers offer a comprehensive, value-for-money selection.
The Vintners Collection is billed as a “complete one stop shop value wine range” bringing all the trusted favourites from the most popular vineyards of Italy, California, South Africa, Australia and Chile under one label.
Up to July 13, 2013, the Vintners Collection will be available at £19.95 per case from Landmark Wholesale member depots – ensuring 20%+ POR for retailers selling the range at £4.99 per 75cl bottle.
