The Today’s Group today confirmed that two independent wholesalers will be joining the Group, one being welcomed back to Today’s Group after a two-year period with Landmark Wholesale.
Gilson’s Foods Limited of Leicester, formerly a member of Today’s for 23 years will re-join the Group with immediate effect.
John Schofield, acting managing director of the Today’s Group said: “We are absolutely delighted that the Gilson family has taken the decision to re-join the Today’s Group. We were disappointed when, as a long-standing member, they decided to leave the Group in 2015. We are looking forward to working with them to support them in growing and developing their business into the future.”
In addition, in a joint statement this week (w/c 16 October 2017), Kitwave announced that it would be joining the Today’s Group with effect from January 2018. For the past 30 years Kitwave has been a member of Sugro, the ambient impulse focused buying group, however, as Kitwave has expanded more of its operations into grocery, export and on trade markets, ‘making the Today’s Group a more appropriate fit with the wholesaler’, according to a Today’s spokeswoman..
Mike Young, commercial director of Kitwave Group said, “as a Group we have expanded dramatically in recent times and will continue to do so in the future. To aid this strategic growth the Today’s Group offering provides a perfect partnership for our needs”
John Schofield also commented: “we welcome Kitwave to the Today’s family and look forward to working with the team to create a collaboration that is beneficial to both parties.”
