Welcome to August
What a fabulous summer it has been for bringing the country together, from the Royal wedding to the amazing performances of the England team in the World Cup; even the weather has managed to do our country proud with endless wall to wall sunshine. I do hope you have all managed to take some time away from your busy schedules to enjoy the prolonged heatwave.
The positivity that the weather brings has continued here at WH as over the last few months the business has continued to grow with a 65% increase from last year in sales from within our frozen sector. This growth has enabled us to begin the process of expanding our warehouse cold room facilities in order to provide our customers with a greater range of chilled and frozen products in the future.
We are proud to have recently welcomed new colleagues to both our sales and logistics teams as well as seeing the promotion of one of our long standing customer service advisors. Sadly, this news is also paired with that of colleagues who have left or are planning to retire from the WH family in the future.
In our last newsletter we had just launched our new look website and have since been working hard behind the scenes to increase our social media presence. Our May competition to win £100 of Renshaw baking vouchers was won by Angela Merritt for her wedding cake flavour creation – peach and prosecco, which sounds perfect for the summer. If you haven’t already liked us on Facebook, please do or visit our website where we can keep you up to date with all our competitions along with monthly product offers from our brochures. Plus, don’t forget we are also on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
This month we have some fantastic offers including an amazing deal from one of our new, award winning, Cheshire based suppliers, Nelstrop’s Flour, producer of the finest quality flours for over 190 years. Only while stocks last, the family owned company is giving our customers an introductory 20% off a range of their new flours. Please contact your Account Manager or Customer Services for pricing and availability.
We also have great savings to be made on Baker and Baker tray bakes with 15% off their range which includes a new chocolate brownie as well as firm favourites tiffin and flapjack among others.
Renshaws have lowered prices on a range of their premium products and Zeelandia are offering £5 off per bag of their range of doughnut mixes throughout August. Dawn foods are already looking ahead to the autumn with a selection of mixes available for those spooky creations. See the brochure for details of how you can be the first to get your hands on some free Halloween themed goodies. And finally Macphie currently have 10% off their Sensations range of cake mixes which come in a variety of flavours with real fruit pieces added.
As always, I would like to thank you all for your continued support. Enjoy the rest of the summer.
