Confex is preparing for its third trade show which coincides with its 40th anniversary.
Sixty suppliers will be representing diverse products from foodservice, confectionery, to drinks and tobacco.
Confex will be running a charity golf event and dinner in aid of Sweet Charity. It will also be celebrating its 40th anniversary with members and suppliers. The Green Wholesaler Awards will be presented at the dinner the night before the trade show. Members’ entries will be judged in four categories with an overall winner. They will be asked to report on how they reduce their environmental impact in terms of their use of energy, transport and recycling as well as what positive impact they have in their local community.
The award is being run in partnership with Eco-veritas, a team of data analysts and environmental specialists, and the Fuel Card People who are contributing towards the prize.
The event will be held at the Cotswold Water Park Four Pillars Hotel at South Cerney, near Gloucester, on April 25-26.
