LWC Drinks acquires HT White & Co

Published:  02 November, 2017

Southern-based wholesaler LWC Drinks has confirmed it is in the process of acquiring HT White & Co of Eastbourne.

The two wholesalers this morning told Harpers, in a joint statement, that the owners of LWC were in the process of acquiring the shares of HT White & Co.

The acquisition would enable both companies to benefit from joint purchasing and “other opportunities”, they told Harpers.

HT White & Co, a specialist wine merchant supplying wine, spirits, beer and soft drinks to licensed outlets in East & West Sussex, Kent and part of Surrey, would continue to operate as a separate trading company, they added.

Based in the south, composite wholesaler LWC Drinks – ranked third in the Top 50 Drinks Wholesalers list 2017 - has an extensive reach around the British Isles and is one of the UK’s largest independent drinks wholesaler.

Founded as recently as 1979, the last 40 years has seen LWC grow its portfolio to more than 7,000 wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks, which it serves to more than 7,000 on-trade customers.

A countrywide network of depots allows this big player to efficiently reach a broad mix of restaurants, bars, hotels, event spaces and festivals up and down Britain.
