In his speech to delegates, Nisa-Today's group md John Schofield announced record trading figures with a large number of suppliers, and volume growth throughout central distribution operations. He said: "The new Nisachill/Nisafreeze operation is moving 12% ahead of last year and Nisaway ambient grocery like for like member volumes are running up 8.5%. Licensed distribution, launched 18 months ago, is achieving over 100,000 cases a week." Schofield said Nisa was now focusing on business development initiatives "by working with individual suppliers so that we achieve specific mutual commercial objectives". "CBC will also be aiming to achieve targeted reductions in branded cost prices to deal with EDLP and the major work being done on supply chain cost pricing," he added. {{NEWS }}
