Staff at Parfetts receive 8% bonus

The employee-owned wholesaler is awarding colleagues an 8% profit share bonus to recognise their contribution to the continued growth of the business

The bonus comes after one of up to 2% in June and a cost-of-living payment up to £500.

Parfetts has seen a series of record trading periods over the last six months, with its annual Parfest and the September Savers promotional event driving record sales. The September event saw sales top £14.6m while the Aintree depot achieved sales of £3.5m during the promotional week.

“Our team continues to go above and beyond to deliver great customer service and help retailers maximise their margins in a challenging economic climate,” said Guy Swindell, joint managing director, Parfetts. “We want to ensure that we recognise this dedication with a bonus that will help with the rising cost of living that we all face.

“Parfetts is pushing on all fronts to ensure that we continue to help our customers however they shop with us – in our network of industry-leading depots, through our ever-growing team of regional development managers, and with investment in new technology to ensure it’s easy to do business with us.”

Swindell said that the wholesaler was focused on its seasonal events and promotional activity to drive footfall and basket spend and grow margins.
