Bestway recently hosted two Thank You’ events to recognise and reward its customer loyalty and supplier partnerships, including Coca-Cola Euro-Pacific Partners, which celebrated a milestone partnership with the wholesaler.
The special Thank You Lunch was hosted by directors of the business at Bestway’s Head Office in Park Royal on the 25th January, and included the launch of the ‘Thank You Supplier Awards’ to recognise the best talent and rising stars in the industry. These key individuals were recognised for having gone above and beyond the call of duty to excel in their roles and in the creation of new and exciting ways of working with Bestway over the past year.
Managing director Dawood Pervez said: “We know it’s been a tough time for all with immense turbulence in retail. This was a great opportunity for us to express our gratitude to our customers for their loyalty and patronage over the past year and we saw the event as a celebration of the partnerships we have built – which we value and appreciate.
“We recognise that our customers have been affected by economic volatility and our aim was to provide the best value savings and deliver relevant support to help them have the best possible start to 2023”.
