Bestway’s investment into new depots, own-label, Bestpets and online ordering has driven annual turnover up by 5.7% to £2.3 billion for the year ended 30 June, 2012. Profit before tax was £58.2m.
Web sales account for about £2.5m per week. Further developments include investment into a chilled distribution facility in Coventry, which will become operational in October.
New specialised wholesale depots for Bestpets have been opened in Newcastle and Nottingham, and two existing sites in Exeter and Luton have doubled in size. A new site in Glasgow is currently underway.
Mr Zameer Choudrey (pictured), Bestway’s chief executive said, “The Group has maintained its share in its respective markets despite a challenging business environment in the UK and globally.”
