Morgenrot and MD Carl Plath Recognised

July 2019

Following our enigmatic Managing Director Carl Plath being selected as one of the UK wine trade’s 100 most influential people by Drinks Retailing Magazine, we’re delighted to announce that our company has now been chosen as one of the Top 50 wholesalers by Harpers Wine & Spirit Magazine.

The Drinks Retailing Magazine – ‘Top 100 Most Influential People In Wine’ details and celebrates the most influential, authoritative and dynamic personalities in the trade so it’s great recognition for our company and a huge honour for Carl to make it to number 87 in the prestigious list.

Carl Plath commented:

“It’s a massive pleasure to have made the Top 100 list and something I will treasure but credit has to go to the amazing people working throughout our business.  Their energy, dedication, passion and support makes everything worthwhile and is why I’m lucky to have the best job in the world.”

Fast on the heels of Carl’s success, we were handed a double boost after the highly acclaimed Harpers Wine & Spirit Magazine released their annually compiled list of the top 50 UK drinks wholesalers.

Identifying and showcasing the incredible work carried out in the UK’s wholesale sector, this year the judging criteria focused on a more holistic picture rather than just looking at turnover, shape and size.  The list analysed aspects such as company ethos, investment, services offered, evolution of portfolio, added value, sustainability and ethical considerations.

The result is a list that shines the spotlight on 50 of the very best drinks wholesalers in the UK so we’re over the moon to have made it to number 28.

Commercial Director John Critchley said:

“To be recognised by such a prestigious magazine as Harpers and make it to 28 on the list is a fantastic acheivement for our business.  We pride ourselves on our customer service, innovative portfolio and company culture so this acknowledgment is a sign of the exciting future ahead.”
