JJ Foodservice has broken it yearly sales record, with the wholesaler achieving £270m for the year ending March 31st, up 22.5% on the previous year.
As well as the reopening of the foodservice market, JJ has put the results down to the retention of new consumers gained during the pandemic and a growth.
Its own brand sales were also cited as a reason for the growth, with contributing 36% of total sales in this period, a 20% increase on previous 12 months.
