Australian hospitality supplier Reward Supply Co (Reward) has sought clearance from the Commerce Commission to acquire New Zealand’s Southern Hospitality.

Reward supplies foodservice solutions in Australia and is a member of the ECF Group – an international foodservice distribution company.

In New Zealand, ECF Group operates through Burns & Ferrall and trades as Reward NZ and Safco Limited.

The acquisition would merge both Reward NZ and Southern Hospitality into the ECF Group.

Both Reward NZ and Southern Hospitality “compete” to sell tabletop, kitchenware and other products to restaurants, hospitals and aged care facilities in the country.

It also sells equipment such as ovens, fridges and dishwashers used by customers building or redeveloping commercial kitchens.
