Wholesaler Iain Hill is to offer retailers more fresh, chilled and alcohol products following its takeover by JW Filshill.

The acquisition for an undisclosed sum was announced last week, adding to Iain Hill’s existing specialisms of soft drinks, confectionery and snacks.

Filshill chief executive Simon Hannah said: “Iain Hill’s customers will benefit from a more extensive product range including fresh, chilled, alcohol and grocery – our business development managers and their teams will work closely with those customers to help them develop their businesses.

Iain Hill managing director Iain Hill, who will leave the company, added: “For my customers, the number of food and drink lines available to them increases from 1,200 to 6,500 overnight, so it a great opportunity for them.”
