The company said it was making strong progress with the integration of Matthew Clark and Bibendum ahead of plan.

Chief executive Diana Hunter said: “I am pleased that the group has delivered this strong performance across all divisions during such a transformational period. This further demonstrates the teamwork and dedication of all of our people in maintaining excellent levels of service to their customers. The organic growth in each business unit demonstrates that existing and new customers are increasingly recognising Conviviality as the leading solution provider and distributor to the UK drinks market.”
