We are dedicated to working with our Members and Supplier partners to grow their businesses within the group through expert negotiation, comprehensive communication and trading integrity.

We are always looking at new initiatives, new markets and ways to provide members with trading opportunities in difficult circumstances. In particular we have a Central Distribution facility, unique to Confex, which allows members to buy products when they cannot meet the minimum order quantities laid down by suppliers, and to enter new categories.

Our mission statement

"To negotiate competitive terms, pricing and promotions with our official suppliers, provide excellent communication of such with high levels of service to the group Members in order that they have the opportunities and tools to grow their businesses in the competitive Wholesale and Cash & Carry market."


The CDC provides members with the ability to order in smaller quantities than would be possible direct with the Supplier. This helps their cash flow, stock planning and drives their business to greater return.
