Statement from Darren Goldney, Managing Director, Unitas Wholesale

Today I have written to all suppliers confirming that Unitas Wholesale and Confex Ltd have ended their association whereby Confex had a ‘group’ membership with Unitas Wholesale.   This arrangement predated Unitas Wholesale and was originally formed between Landmark Wholesale and Confex Ltd, however, rolled over on the formation of Unitas Wholesale. Moving forward we believe collaborations must add value to all parties and this one no longer does.

Unitas is a 170  strong member owned group with a collective turnover exceeding £8.5bn, 320+ supplier partnerships  and a divisional approach with membership that accommodate retail-led, foodservice-led, on trade-led and specialist members of all sizes.   We aim to be efficient for suppliers to get to scale in one place and effective in being able to deliver sales platforms that grow business.

We are excited to be growing in 2020 and to consistently accelerate our journey to develop a ‘selling‘ culture and capability programme. We believe direct interaction and engagement with individual members who are all similarly committed, is a great route.

For clarity, additional collaborations that can accelerate value such as Country Range Group, who has a shared vision for improvement and excellence in foodservice that Unitas Wholesale can complement are still very much welcome.

We thank Confex for their partnership over the years and wish them success for their future endeavours
