Managing director Martin Williams said the move reflected the changed dynamics of Landmark’s business - now split 60:40 delivered to cash and carry - and the creation of separate strategies for retail, catering and food service areas. Changes also include improved terms for members, a better structured promotional programme for retailers, and improvements to own label.
Williams added: “Now is the time to acknowledge the diverse range of our members.” The group’s 30 members - 28 still family owned - boast a combined annual turnover of £1.8bn out of 63 depots. Group sales are up 5.5% in the year to date.
