Central Distribution relaunches at Confex

Confex is set to relaunch its Central Distribution centre in May after a short suspension.

It will be open to all UK wholesalers who will also be offered an extended credit facility to help support their businesses.

The operation offers a mixed pallet drop across FMCG and foodservice suppliers at wholesaler pricing, making it unique to the industry.

“We’re pleased to be able to relaunch the Central Distribution service now with an extended credit facility,” said Confex Central Distribution Director, James Loffet.

“All our suppliers have been very supportive and we look forward to now continuing the growth we have experienced during our 12 years of trading. The new improved service offering extended credit along with range extensions will be key for our customers to help them get back on their feet following Covid-19.”

The reopening is a positive indication that Confex wholesalers, many of who were negatively affected by coronavirus restrictions, are starting to drive more business by adapting to lockdown conditions – and Chairman Martin Williams reserved special praise for the facility.

“The Confex Central Distribution service has long been the envy of some of our buying group competitors and we are delighted to resume trading so quickly after the short suspension,” Williams added.

“The Confex Central Distribution offers benefits to our suppliers, members and other wholesalers, so should be a great success. We look forward to developing our volume and distribution with suppliers and wholesalers alike.”
