Glanbia Ireland wins at National Grocery Retail Awards
Glanbia Ireland was awarded ‘Fresh Produce Supplier of the Year’ at the inaugural National Grocery Retail Awards.
The new awards scheme is an amalgam of Ireland’s premier awards for fresh food retailing, the Checkout Best in Fresh awards, and the leading awards for suppliers to the industry, the Checkout National Retail Supplier awards.
“The individual stores, retailers and suppliers that have excelled in these awards are those that have demonstrated innovation and responsiveness to consumer trends,” said Maev Martin, editor, Checkout magazine.
“These are the hallmarks of a leading grocery supply and retail operation. Our winners have set new standards because they bring their passions and dreams of what a store can be to life to create the perfect shopping experience.”
The National Grocery Retail Awards also included a number of new and exciting categories, including the award for Ireland’s Retailer of the Year, Best Sustainability Initiative and Best Community Initiative.
Glanbia Ireland was awarded the ‘Fresh Produce Supplier of the Year’ at the awards. The judges remarked that “a thriving fresh produce operation is only as good as the suppliers that service that operation”.
Eoin Doyle, Glanbia Ireland’s Head of Consumer Marketing and Product Management, said: “The award is a strong reflection of the quality of our fresh produce from farm to table. Everyone at every stage of our supply chain works to deliver only the best to our customers.
“Our award-winning brands such as the Avonmore range, Kilmeaden, Wexford and Premier are firm favourites amongst consumers.”
