Best wholesale or distributor finalists revealed for PPS Awards 2019

The finalists for the Best Wholesaler or Distributor category in this year’s Progressive Preschool Awards have been revealed, recognising the companies who have been invaluable to preschool suppliers and retailers over the last 12 months.

The finalists in this category truly reflect the cross-category nature of the Preschool Awards, featuring companies who specialise in a wide range of product sectors, all focusing on serving the 0-5 market.

“There are many wholesalers and distributors in the preschool sector who have made a positive difference to the industry over the last year,” said Jacqui Parr, editor of Progressive Preschool and organiser of the Progressive Preschool Awards. “It’s made this year’s selection process particularly difficult as we know so many have excelled in their mission to provide the best service possible for both suppliers and retailers. Congratulations to all who made it!”

The winners will be revealed at the Progressive Preschool Awards ceremony on Tuesday 5 November, 2019 at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair.
