EPE congratulates BHF-BSSA Group becoming BIRA, the British Independent Retailers Association – 11/05/2011

The new identity was adopted at the association’s annual general meeting at Lingfield on May 4th. The previous name was adopted in the 2009 merger of the century-old BHF Group and the British Shops and Stores Association (bssa). It was always intended that once the merger had been consolidated, the final act would be to give it a new and clearer identity.

“BIRA heralds an important new force in the world of independents” said BIRA CEO Alan Hawkins, announcing the change. EPE is pleased to see the advancement of a key industry figure, this important transition shows the rapid progression of a market on a continual rise. EPE has made remarkable headway with growth & turnover alike over the course of our history, and would like to thank BHF-BSSA / BIRA for their encouragement & support over the years, we are pleased to offer our congratulations.

David Escoda of Ascaso and their UK sales director Mr Payne, were happy to appoint EPE as their distributor to the independent market. – 08/02/2011

David Escoda said:

“Refinement of our distribution channels and routes to the independent market revealed a need for a focused premium distributor.As such we are happy to announce Ascaso UK has decided that the most efficient way to provide our range directly to the independent market is through a single distributor, and we have appointed EPE as our distributor to this channel. EPE have shown their ability to process and tailor orders to independent retailers perfectly. We are confident EPE will develop into a valuable asset for Ascaso UK providing any independents interested in our range a stronghold of stock holding and a reliable delivery service.

Our findings and research showed the level of national coverage and exposure EPE can provide with their established POS Coffee Choice ‘The most influential priced coffee guide in the industry’ it was apparent that to expand a premium brand in the market, Ascaso had to go to a premium brand distributor.”

Mr N Payne said:

“We are also happy to demonstrate for EPE ‘Live demonstrations will be held on EPE’s stand at the NEC Spring Fair from the 6th to the 8th of February 2011. Click here Ascaso live demonstrations at the Spring Fair.
