“The food distribution industry is relatively new to me and I welcome the opportunity to gain knowledge of a whole new sector within supply chain,” says Connolly. “My initial focus is solely on developing business in the North West and Middleton area so it is an exciting chance to make a real impact.’

“I was attracted to NFT because of the many prospects for growth and development, all underpinned by a very rich history in continued expansion. I’m really looking forward to applying my energy and drive to this fast-moving industry and working with an ambitious and like-minded team.”

Bob Duffy, national business development manager at NFT, says:  “NFT has proven financial strength throughout the business and this is something that Sean’s appointment will contribute to.”
