Specialist confectionery cash and carry Hancocks has announced 5% year on year sales growth for 2005.
Hancocks CEO Andrew Hancock commented: “We are successfully continuing our trend of solid growth in a mature and competitive market. Much of this is down to a wide, competitively priced range of branded and own label confectionery complemented by ongoing deep cut deals, backed up with excellent service and business advice at cash and carry level.
“We work hard to give our customers the best service we can, enabling them to profitably build their business.”
He said a key achievement during 2005 had been a 20% increase in the number of new customer registrations, coupled with a 10% reduction in the number of customers ceasing to be registered with Hancocks, and said this provided a solid base for the future.
