AF Blakemore invested £19m in improving its retail and infrastructure operations during its last financial year.
This month, the wholesaler and Spar operator released its annual trading results for the year ending 1 May 2022.
The company’s chairman, Peter Blakemore, said that group sales grew 19% year on year, despite challenges in the supply chain.

He added: “It is a direct result of the team commitment and investment made in the previous year to stabilise outbound supply, invest in new format propositions and continue to develop our IT systems to optimise sales and margin opportunities.
“Opening our Bedford depot provides supply-chain security and enables greater stock holding at a time when many manufacturers continue to struggle with inbound availability.”
