Landmark Wholesale has been crowned best wholesaler for the second year in a row at the Him! wholesale awards.

The awards are based on the consultancy's Cash & Carry Retailer & Caterer Customer Tracking Programme, which polls 6,000 independent retailers and caterers on customer satisfaction, speed of service and staff helpfulness at their local cash & carry.

"To retain this award is a tremendous achievement and upholds all our beliefs and investments," said Landmark MD Martin Williams.

Cadbury won the award for Best Supplier as Voted for by Independent Retailers, based on feedback from 3,500 retailers.

"It's hugely rewarding to receive recognition from independent retailers and shows the focus we put on this part of the trade," said impulse marketing controller Nilufar Verjee.
