Waitrose wine deal for Hillebrand

Waitrose has awarded the contract to manage all its wine imports to JF Hillebrand in a three year deal.

The move follows the implementation of the Hillebrand system across a selection of trade lanes over the last four years.

Andrew Shaw, buying manager (wines) at Waitrose said: “The JF Hillebrand solution will result in a responsive and robust supply chain which will reduce our stockholding – a critical factor in enabling our network to absorb the tremendous business growth we have planned for the future. By entering this agreement we have established a mutually beneficial partnership with our suppliers and JF Hillebrand and look forward to further developing this in coming years.
