Stevens Garnier has revealed its ambition to be “a mini Bibendum or Berry Bros & Rudd” as it seeks to double its turnover in five years.

Buying and marketing director James Forbes said: “We already sell to London but we want to expand the reach. We have a five-year plan to double turnover.”?The company is also “going through a process of realigning its image”, according to Forbes, with the launch of a revamped company logo and redesigned website, which will have an ecommerce function by the end of the year.

The website will “initially be business-to-business”, Forbes said, “and the second phase before Christmas will be business-to-consumer”.

Forbes added that the company had plans to expand its portfolio, with Italy, Germany and fine wines being key areas of focus.
