Report Details

In 2021, the UK wholesale market was forecast to be worth £28.9bn, with traditional wholesale accounting for 84% and hybrid and foodservice wholesale accounting for 8% each. Wholesalers have had to cope with unpredictable demand – and the pandemic has accelerated the growth of digital solutions and new revenue streams such as direct-to-consumer.
