Whittard of Chelsea Appoints Cotswold Fayre

Whittard’s teas, coffees, drinking chocolates and a range of gifts will now be supplied to independent food retailers including farm shops, delicatessen and garden centres.

Whittard has already gained consumer popularity through its 57 stores and online and export arms.

Angela Hibbard, UK wholesale business manager at Whittard of Chelsea said, “The wholesale stream of the business has grown considerably over the past two years which has led us to outsource our distribution to independent retailers. Cotswold Fayre has an excellent reputation within the speciality food industry and this combined with the company’s strong contacts and track record made them the perfect choice for us.”

Paul Hargreaves, managing director of Cotswold Fayre said, “We are delighted to be working with such an iconic and well respected brand. We are confident that we can continue the sales growth of Whittard of Chelsea’s products in this specialist retail arena and look forward to introducing the range to our customers.”
