Wholesale industry gathers to praise its golden greats

The Prime Minister joined the applause for the winners of the Federation of Wholesale Distributors’ Gold Medal Awards, which were presented in London last night.

David Cameron sent his congratulations to the medal winners and their colleagues in FWD member companies for “the incredible resilience, efficiency and commitment they never fail to show.”

Introducing the 30 shortlisted finalists, FWD chairman Martin Williams told the 800 guests: “Tonight is about celebrating the excellent contribution of people who
make wholesale tick. Not the business owners and managing directors, but the depot managers, the drivers, the telesales staff, and the shop floor workers. 

“They are as important to the sustainability and profitability of our businesses as
anyone in this room.”
