Diana Hunter, chief executive of Conviviality, said: “I am pleased to report a strong set of results that demonstrate our focus and commitment to serving our customers well, working in partnership with our suppliers and delivering against our strategic plans.
“We firmly believe there is exciting potential for significant organic growth for our businesses, with further potential opportunities to build on the current platform.”
The company said trading in the nine weeks to 2 July was in line with expectations with Conviviality Retail like-for-like sales up 0.5% and Wine Rack sales up 4%.
