MFG becomes newest member of SGF

Motor Fuel Group, the UK’s largest independent forecourt retailer, has become the latest member of the Scottish Grocers Federation (SGF).

The company, which has around 900 stations operating under the BP, Shell, Esso, Texaco, Jet and Murco fuel brands, will also take a place on the federation’s National Executive.

MFG’s retail managing director, Steve Fox, said: “We are delighted to becoming a member of the SGF and we are looking forward to taking a seat on the board. It’s a real privilege to be invited to join an organisation which does such valuable work in supporting local retailers and communities.”

SGF chief executive, Pete Cheema, added: “This is a new and exciting partnership for both SGF and MFG which will enable us to more fully represent the forecourt retailing sector in Scotland. Having MFG on board will undoubtedly strengthen and add to the work of the National Executive and increase the influence it has across the industry.”
