FoodSource, a subsidiary of Eden Prairie, Minn.-based C.H. Robinson, received the top supplier, collaboration and service award from Brookshire Grocery Co. (BGC).
The award from the Tyler, Texas-based regional retailer recognizes FoodSource’s ability to provide it with innovative new items, consistent quality and pricing in a full line of fruits and vegetables from around the world, and for achieving an above 98 percent service level.
In addition to providing BGC with commodity and service expertise, the FoodSource account management team provided sales and promotions support. As well, the Pink Ribbon Watermelon program contributed a donation to breast cancer research on BGC’s behalf.
“FoodSource has been a tremendous vendor partner,” said Brookshire’s Dave Krause, SVP, category management for the 154-store grocer. “Their dedication to listening to our company’s needs, working collaboratively to develop solutions and delivering those competitive sales promotions has really had an impact on our customers and our business.”
Throughout the year, FoodSource would conduct conference calls twice a month with BGC to discuss initiative progress and upcoming opportunities in addition to weekly market reports and monthly planners.
“This award is an incredible accomplishment and couldn’t be done without our outstanding account management team,” said Ray Griffin, general manager at FoodSource. “Their commodity knowledge combined with building long-standing relationships has been instrumental in engraining our companies’ capabilities together. This team demonstrates what hard work, progressive thinking and tireless dedication can do for a business relationship.”
