Costcutter Supermarkets Group (CSG) is celebrating being named Overall Supplier of the Year at the Foodbuy Awards 2020.

The award recognises the support CSG provides as wholesale supplier to 135 Compass Group convenience stores at military, healthcare, education and business sites. Over the past two and a half years, the number of stores CSG supplies has quadrupled. Last year like-for-like sales across the stores were up 12%, with many seeing a 40% sales bump.

Ian Murphy, Managing Director, Foodbuy said: “We place enormous value in our partnership with Costcutter Supermarkets Group and their support over the last year makes them a truly deserved winner of this award. They have continually innovated their offer, most recently including the rollout of 80 self-service checkouts and a new loyalty app and wallet. A real focus and understanding of customers, combined with great account management, has been a recipe for success. Many congratulations to the entire team!”

Bill Randles, from Costcutter Supermarkets Group, said: “We pride ourselves on the support we provide all of our retail partners, with the entire team striving to go the extra mile whenever we can. To have this recognised through this award win is fantastic and we look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with Foodbuy, seeking new opportunities to support their business.”
