Nisbets’ Richard Acey collected the Distributor of the Year - Business Development trophy from Jestic’s Mike Woodman and Catering Insight editor Clare Nicholls.

The Catering Insight Distributor of the Year – Business Development Award, sponsored by Jestic Foodservice Solutions, celebrates distributors which have significantly moved their companies forwards over the last 12 months.

After a very close contest, rewarded with 26% of the vote was Nisbets.

This year the catering equipment giant revolutionised its offering with a first of its kind Argos-style trade counter store concept to serve the hospitality sector. The trade counter is aimed at offering a fast and easy order and collect system that ensures when time is of the essence, end users are able to get the products they need, whenever they need them, 7 days a week.

The first five locations for the new format stores span the country, in Swansea, Plymouth, Coventry, Northampton and Bradford.

Nisbets’ Richard Acey collected the trophy onstage and said: “I think we’ve brought something entirely new this year.

“The trade counters we’ve put in are now up to five, with plans for more, and it has been something truly unique in terms of enabling caterers to go and get stock in an efficient way, whether they’re in distress or are looking for something entirely new.”
