JLB Wholesale was established in 2004 by James Bowes with a concept to supply independent retailers and wholesalers across the UK with discounted products in the confectionery and soft drink sector. Since then the company has evolved and diversified into additional sectors such as toiletries, houseware's, pet food, stationery and groceries.

Before JLB Wholesale was established James started out on a pitch table in a market selling salvage grocery stock bought from a national wholesaler. No more than two pallets a week were bought as funding was not available. Now operating from two sites York and Northampton, JLB Wholesale can now offer to clear stocks worth in excess of £100,000 with all stocks being cleared within twenty-four hours of monies being received.

Here at JLB we are not interested in short term profits but in forming long lasting relationships with our suppliers built on communication and trust.
