Nisa has been awarded the contract to supply the 298 c-stores that McColl’s recently acquired from the Co-op.
Subject to the government’s competition watchdog approving the Co-op deal, Nisa will begin supplying the first of the new McColl’s stores in January 2017, with the entire portfolio transitioned by June next year.
Jonathan Miller, CEO of McColl’s, said: “Nisa’s quality fresh and chilled food supply strongly complements our ongoing expansion in the convenience sector, and will enable us to provide our new customers with a full range of high quality products at competitive prices.
“We look forward to building on our existing relationship with Nisa to enhance our customer offer even further, as we deliver the next stage of our neighbourhood convenience strategy.”
Nick Read, CEO of Nisa Retail, added: “This is clear progress against our strategy to be the partner of choice for both retailers and wholesalers, as we seek to build greater scale for the benefit of all our stakeholders.”
It’s been a good couple of months for Nisa. In October it signed a two-year deal with Bourne Leisure to supply stores across its Butlins and Haven holiday parks.
