WITH the Bahamas Food Services/Sysco deal moving forward, one Bahamian wholesaler yesterday expressed hope that Bahamian-owned suppliers could survive if the Texas-based distribution giant stuck to serving the hotel industry.

Patrick Treco, managing director of Continental Foods, told Tribune Business that if Sysco stuck to food distribution for hotels and restaurants, leaving the retail side to Bahamian wholesalers, they might survive.

The multi-billion US based conglomerate is involved in marketing and distributing food products to restaurants, hotels and inns, and other food service and hospitality businesses.

“As far as I’m concerned competition is good,” Mr Treco said. “Once there is a fair playing field I feel that we will survive.
