Dawood Pervez, managing director, Bestway Wholesale

Bestway Wholesale have announced the restructure of Costcutter Supermarkets Group (CSG) as the first step of the integration of the business into Bestway Wholesale.

Managing director, Dawood Pervez confirmed that the two businesses would be integrated seamlessly, in order to unlock additional value for customers and streamline efficiencies within the combined business:

“We want to ensure that all operating divisions are focused on delivering value for our customers, and on elements that matter most to them in order to continue to deliver service excellence and accelerate growth.

“We all operate in a highly competitive and dynamic market and by aligning CSG’s structure and process within our broader business, this helps us prepare for the challenges and opportunities ahead.

“We will be looking to minimise job losses within this process, which will be unrolled over the weeks ahead. We recognise that these changes will be difficult for colleagues and we will be doing everything we can to fully support those affected”.

The integration programme is being headed by Bestway’s chief operating officer, Naser Khan.
