Glasgow wholesaler JW Filshill has attributed a 1.9% rise in turnover on strong performance in soft drinks, grocery, food to go and fresh and chilled.

Turnover increased to £145m, up from £142m in 2017 for the year ending 31 January 2018.

However, the company reported a dip in operating profits as the firm incurred higher overheads.

Managing director Simon Hannah said: “Changing the mix of our business has increased overheads, but we are prepared to incur these costs to ensure our customers have the armoury they need to compete in the convenience marketplace.”
