Andrew Roberts Cause Of Death, Obituary Unavailable Yet – Andrew Roberts, a coworker, and a dear friend have died of natural causes over the Easter weekend, according to reports.
Andrew was characterized as fiercely devoted, tremendously kind, and incredibly supportive by those who knew and loved him.
Andrew worked in the UK foodservice industry for nearly 30 years, starting at Booker Cash & Carry in 1994 as a Buying Controller before being transferred to Booker Foodservice to lead the buying team.
According to linkedin.com, His passion and determination radiated through his work and his teams. He revolutionized the way we now work with our suppliers, which every year is validated by the Advantage Group Survey drawn from supplier feedback. The survey consistently positions Bidfood as a leading and trusted wholesaler, with fantastic feedback across the board on how we communicate, value, and work in partnership with our supplier partners. Andrew was instrumental in this.
In 1999 when Booker Foodservice was sold to Bidvest (renamed 3663 First for Foodservice shortly after), Andrew was brought on board to start building from scratch a buying department. Alongside the directorate at the time, Andrew built and developed the commercial arm of the business to become the incredibly successful team it is today and so it wasn’t a surprise that he was promoted to Director of Buying within just a few years of joining 3663.
He continued to impress over the years, winning several accolades, most notably the Chairman’s award across the entire Bidvest Group in 2009. In 2015 Andrew progressed to the role of Commercial Director overseeing the Buying, Campaign and Activation, Studio, and Events functions, and in 2018 was appointed to Bidfood’s Senior Leadership Team, where he remained until the present day.
