Landmark Wholesale has launched a new foodservice programme called Caterer Connections in an effort to address what the group calls “the complex challenges and demands faced by those in the foodservice and catering trades”.
Caterer Connections is led by Chris Doyle (pictured), Landmark Wholesale’s business development director who has assembled a dedicated Out of Home team comprising Les Mohammed, Foodservice Controller; and Martin Spivey, On-Trade Controller, who have a combined 40 years’ in the foodservice industry between them.
By connecting suppliers, Landmark Wholesale members and their out-of-home customers, the aim is for Caterer Connections “to deliver successful partnerships as well as better products, prices and solutions, all to benefit customers.”
“We’re confident that Catering Connections will step change our foodservice and catering members’ businesses,” said Doyle. “Our mission was to sign up all of our out-of-home members and 30 key out-of-home suppliers to the new Caterer Connections Club and I’m delighted to say that we have achieved this. We’re confident that this will attract new foodservice members, as recent additions to the Landmark Group, such as RD Johns and Turners, have been really impressed by it.”
A key element of the programme, says Doyle, is a range of essential product guides which will enable caterers to choose what they need within budget. “Branded and own-brand items are cherry-picked to ensure you get great quality and exceptional value. They really are a one-stop shop for those working in foodservice.”
Caterer Connections will sit alongside Landmark Wholesale’s already successful All You Need retail business drives.
