Premier Foods rolls out the red carpet for suppliers

​Premier Foods shone the spotlight on suppliers last week, as the company hosted its annual conference and supplier awards at the Curve Theatre in Leicester. 

More than 500 delegates came together to gain a deeper understanding of Premier’s business strategy and future growth plans, and how they can play a key role.

Awards were presented to those already making a significant contribution. Overall Supplier of the Year was won by CHEP, for bringing a new approach to its way of working with Premier’s operations team to deliver outstanding results, including six figure cost savings. Media agency Carat picked up the other top prize of Strategic Partner of the Year, having helped transform how the company utilises its media spend.

Procurement and Central Operations Director Mark Hughes commented, “Having strong relationships with our suppliers is critical to helping us accelerate our growth. By developing strategic partnerships, we’ll further increase sales, take costs out of the business and ensure we’re growing in a sustainable and responsible way.”

Additional awards presented on Wednesday included the following:
● Individual award: Gary Hughes from AAK for consistently demonstrating excellent innovative ideas to Premier’s sweet and savoury innovation teams
● Supplier award: a consortium of six companies, the Storylab, 20th Century Fox, Lime, Robot Food, 2OTEN, and Carat, for their support in executing and activating Cadbury Amaze Bites’ partnership with Absolutely Fabulous, the movie
● Supplier award: Graphic Packaging International, for their best in class packaging design and concept creations for Cadbury Mini Rolls and Batchelors soups in addition to extensive cost reduction and delivery of outstanding service at short notice.
