L-r: Wendy Pierce, senior project manager, KCCJ; Jack Sweet, business development manager, KCCJ; Mark Reid, operations director, Nayati; and Clare Nicholls, editor, Catering Insight.

The Catering Insight Distributor of the Year, South of England accolade, sponsored by Nayati, rewards those dealers based anywhere from the Cotswolds to East Anglia that have excelled this year.

And the supplier vote decided that the winner should be KCCJ for a second year running, though just by a few votes.

The Kent-based distributor has continued its massive workscope on Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium, its biggest ever project. Within this it has been tasked with designing a unique efficient drinks distribution system.

Along with other recent projects such as a 2-year outfit of a major London media company, this has meant the distributor has doubled in size to 30 staff and opened a Tottenham office, along with establishing new marketing and sales support divisions.

Other investments include in training and software, particularly for the CAD team.
