Like-for-like sales at Booker rose by 1.7% in the 12 weeks to 22 June, compared with the same period last year.
Chief executive Charles Wilson said: "Booker Group continues to make good progress. Our plans to focus, drive and broaden the business remain on track.
"We are pleased to have the team at Makro UK as part of Booker Group. Together we look forward to improving choice, prices and service for all our catering, retailing and small business customers in the UK."
Stuart Hyslop, sales director - catering, said: "The first quarter has remained challenging for our caterers, with consumers watching every penny they spend. We have continued to work alongside them to ensure we are offering great value through our exclusive own-brands such as Chef's Larder and Farm Fresh.
"Booker Basics has also performed well as consumers are really searching for value in the current climate. Our ‘Locked Down Prices' for the season has provided our customers with confidence that their costs will not go up on core ingredients such as bread, milk, fresh meat, fruit and vegetables".
