Premier Foods Recognises Outstanding Supplier Contribution in 2015

Premier Foods today announced the results of its 2015 supplier awards at a presentation ceremony staged as part of its annual supplier conference at Wokefield Park, Reading.

The supplier awards are an annual event organised by the Company to recognise outstanding contributions to its business strategy. This year there were four award categories reflecting three key elements of the Company’s strategy and an overall champion.
Award Category Winner
Increase Sales McCann London for driving growth of Bisto through the Bisto Together campaign
Decrease Costs Factora Solutions for delivering efficiency, quality and waste reduction improvements to established processes helping generate significant manufacturing savings
Drive Sustainability Prima Foods UK Ltd for sustaining the Atora brand through a rapid supply change for suet including a switch to sustainable palm oil
Overall Champion AAK for delivering significant value against all strategic priorities: inspiring a new innovation in Cadbury Hot Cakes to increase sales; helping design a superior Cadbury flake cake at lower cost; and playing a leading role in our transition to 100% certified sustainable palm oil one year ahead of target

Commenting on the awards, Mark Hughes, Procurement and Central Operations Director said,
“The annual supplier awards are a great way for us to recognise outstanding achievement and motivate our suppliers. We’re passionate about our supplier relationships and driving strong partnerships is critical to our growth strategy. There were some tremendous contenders this year and each of the winners demonstrated a true commitment to our business. Congratulations to all.”
