What’s in June’s Wholesale News?

Get ready for FWD’s next generation conference with our companion edition

As the wholesale industry prepares to cast its mind towards the next decade and beyond with FWD’s annual conference, Wholesale News is offering up some additional analysis of its own.

Linked to the theme of the next generation, we’ve spent the past month exploring the talent, technology and trends that is likely to guide the sector over the coming years.

One of our lead features this month saw us meet three under-35s who are already making waves in their businesses. But rather than simply profiling their careers so far, we’ve asked them about motivates them, their values and where they see the sector moving.

This month’s meet the member feature takes us to Indus Foods and Amir Chaudhary, who tells us about his ambitions for the future – not just for his business, but also the entire industry. Chaudhary is also working with FWD to get more new talent taking wholesale jobs, so there’s plenty in there.

As always, we’ve also canvassed the conference’s sponsors to find out their views and we’ve also got a host of category insight too. Plus, a special guest column from industry favourite Martin Williams, who uses his experience to offer this thoughts on establishing a career in wholesale.

The full online version is also available, whereas you can still subscribe for free to receive every edition on your desk each month.
