COSTCUTTER had cause for celebration after taking the top prize at this year’s Foodbuy Awards.

The wholesaler was named Overall Supplier of the Year in recognition of the support it provides as a supplier to 135 Compass Group convenience stores at military, healthcare, education and business sites.

Over the past two and a half years, the number of CSG supplies has quadrupled, with like-for-like sales across Compass stores up 12% in the last year alone.

Bill Randles of Costcutter Supermarkets Group said: “We pride ourselves on the support we provide all of our retail partners, with the entire team striving to go the extra mile whenever we can.

“To have this recognised through this award win is fantastic and we look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with Foodbuy, seeking new opportunities to support their business.”

The Foodbuy Awards is part of the Foodbuy Conference.

Foodbuy is a leading procurement organisation based in the UK, and part of Compass Group UK & Ireland.
