In order to seek new opportunities across the sector, Blakemore Foodservice has called upon its supplier base to work more collaboratively with the industry.
The call to action came from Blakemore Foodservice’s leaders Caoire Blakemore and Richard Harman at the division’s inaugural supplier conference, which was attended by 60 suppliers in Wolverhampton.
Delegates heard presentations from the company’s senior team, as well as HIM commercial director Ed Sibley, with a focus upon ways that Blakemore and its supplier base can collaborate to meet the future needs of customers.
Head of Blakemore Foodservice, Richard Harman, said: “We’ve spent time with our customers, found out more about their wants and needs and how we can help them to grow and how we can grow towards delivering speciality food with added value.
“I think you’ll agree that these are inspiring times, with investment and opportunities for synergy across the group opening up new markets and exciting developments in digital set to improve the overall customer experience,” he added.
