Today's on-trade arm increases choice

Independent drinks distributor Hills Prospect has become the latest wholesaler to join the on-trade division of Today's Group, one of the UK's largest buying groups.

Hills Prospect was previously one of the largest members of former on-trade buying consortium National Drinks Distributors (NDD) and has an annual turnover of £45m.

Phil Merritt, purchasing director of Hills Prospect said: "When NDD ceased operating at the end of 2013 we stood back and evaluated various options for our business. We concluded that with its already significant on-trade presence, Today's would be an excellent strategic fit for us. We are looking forward to working with the Today's team and fellow members."

Bill Laird, managing director of Today's Group, added: "We are delighted that Hills Prospect has chosen to join our group and become another key operator within our growing on-trade division. They are a highly respected major regional player, servicing the south east and central London and will help to shape the future of our on-trade business."
