Londis has restructured its National Retailer Council.

The symbol group has streamlined the council from 15 to 10 members and increased the number of meetings per year from four to five so that retailer views are channelled more effectively.

Londis has also created a new forecourt forum to add to its existing IT, supply chain and commercial forums to reflect the different types of offer and consumer needs for forecourt stores.

“The changes reflect our aspirations to really work far more closely with our retail partners to build on that sense of family and belonging unique to the Londis business,” said the group’s retail director, John Pattison.
