What’s in May’s Wholesale News?

Get stuck into this month’s edition as we pass first anniversary since refresh

By now, you should have received the latest issue of Wholesale News for your viewing pleasure.

This month’s edition marks a full year since The Bright Media Agency took the reins of the brand, after we took over the contract last May.

Since then, we’ve brought you a wide range of great content and analysis, and this issue is no different.

To give you an even greater vision of what could be happening to the industry in the next few years, FWD’s Director of Communications, David Visick, travelled to India to see what was going on in one of the world’s most fascinating consumer channels.

Closer to home, there’s a profile with JJ Foodservice, a look at the latest soft drinks trends, and category features on the convenience and wine categories.

This edition also comes with a copy of Wholesale 2019 – formerly called the Market Report – which gives an overview of what the next 12 months has in store for the coming months.

Don’t forget, if you’d like to receive a free issue each month, you can sign up on our subscriptions page, while our library of free digital editions is also online. For now, here’s a look at what’s in the mag:
