On 27 February, Bunzl Catering & Hospitality Division were delighted to be presented with the prestigious Supply Chain Partner of The Year award at the Foodbuy Supplier Conference.
Lee Ann Faulkner, Senior National Account Manager, Bunzl Catering Supplies comments: “We have enjoyed a partnership with Foodbuy for the past 3 years and each year we continue to demonstrate that we understand in detail the challenges facing the Group, the complexity of the company and the importance of maintaining a sustainable business. As a wider team we consistently support year on year growth and specifically our approach to sustainability is recognised by Foodbuy as best in class. We proudly remain trusted advisors of Foodbuy and jointly we are leading the way to a sustainable future within the hospitality sector. We are delighted to have been recognised for our work with the Foodbuy Supply Chain Partner of The Year award.”
Over the years the Foodbuy Supplier Conference has grown to become a key event in the Foodbuy business calendar. Held in The Capital Suite at ExCel, London, visitors to the conference gained valuable insight into the Foodbuy future business strategy and took advantage of networking opportunities throughout the day. The 2020 event had a packed agenda, with presentations and workshops, as well as the chance to meet with Foodbuy colleagues and Foodbuy clients, including Compass Group.
Neil Chapman, Services and Equipment Director, Foodbuy comments: “During the last 24 months both myself and my team have been working closely with Bunzl Catering Supplies. During this time, they have continued to take a collaborative approach to working together, identifying opportunities for growth within the category, finding ways to unlock external client opportunities and support with market changes around plastic usage. They approach every project with positivity and manage expectations, ensuring they deliver what we need. If there are issues, they are quick to resolve them. As a supplier partner, they are a great example of working in partnership and showing some of the benefits that can be delivered in doing so.”
Matt Johnson, Managing Director, Bunzl Catering & Hospitality Division summarises: “I have been delighted to see how well the Foodbuy and Bunzl teams have worked together over the course of the last 2 years. We understand the challenges that Foodbuy face in what is a complex and very fast-moving sector, the results we have delivered and our recognition from the Foodbuy Supply Chain Partner of The Year award are a testimony to the genuinely collaborative approach that we have built with the Foodbuy team. Whether it’s managing large-scale projects and implementations, driving innovation or advising on sustainability, I believe that Bunzl has added real value to the Foodbuy businesses.”
We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Foodbuy business throughout 2020 and beyond and we thank them for recognising us and celebrating our joint success by presenting us with the Foodbuy Supplier of the Year Award 2020.
