Harpers Top 50 Wholesalers 2022
The Harpers Wine & Spirit Top 50 Wholesalers have been announced and we are extremely proud to have taken third place in this list of the leading companies in the drinks sector.
Gaining a place in the Top 50 list is no mean feat, with nominated entrants being whittled down from a long list by the Harpers panel of judges who apply several clear criteria to the entries. Company ethos, service, portfolio, training and social and environmental aspects of sustainability were all taken into account, along with innovation and investment in all shapes and forms, to inform the decision-making process.
Read what the panel of expert judges had to say below.
"Judges were full of praise for both Hallgarten & Novum’s portfolio and the dynamic duo of MD Andrew Bewes and boundary-pushing head buyer Steve Daniel, who between them have built a formidable reputation out in the trade. As with most successful businesses, Hallgarten & Novum has a clear ethos and aims, supplying across the trade’s various sectors, but strictly adhering to a ‘trade sales only’ policy, even during lockdowns, and focusing above all on the quality of the offer. Turning over upward of £50m annually, servicing more than 2,000 accounts from its 1,100-strong list, the company added a remarkable 164 new wines from 36 new producers in the past 12 months, spread across the more classic Hallgarten and cutting-edge Novum lists. A real gem."
