Pick up your copy of August’s Wholesale News

This month’s magazine is packed full of the latest industry insight and expertise

It’s that time of month again and the latest issue of Wholesale News is hitting doorsteps across the country – and this time we’ve got even more industry news and features to sink your teeth into.

Within August’s magazine, we take a closer look at hot topics, including how wholesalers can reduce their plastic usage and why the return of Great British Bake Off to our screens could spell good news for the sector. But that’s not all, we also pay a visit to Bidfood’s celebrated development kitchen to find out how its team finds the right balance to supply education customers with the best food and check out the big issues around food provenance.

If that’s enough, FWD’s David Visick takes the role of roving reporter to meet a wholesaler on the Isle of Man which is responsible for supplying the entire island’s service providers. As he finds out, it’s not easy task. And there’s also the bold claim that the UK has the cheapest fuel in Europe – find out how that’s true and if you agree.

As always, there are a couple of ways to read the magazine. The print edition will have been sent out to all subscribers (it’s free, so why not sign up yourself?) or the digital edition is now live for your viewing pleasure. For now, here’s a preview of what’s inside:

It’s a bold statement, but as Portland Fuel Managing Director James Spencer explains, there’s more at play than wholesale cost when it comes to paying at the pumps
