Limerick was named ‘Region of the Year’ at the eighth annual Musgrave MarketPlace Region of the Year Awards, which took place recently at Farnham Estate & Spa, Cavan.
'The annual awards acknowledge the excellent team effort that goes in to the running of Musgrave MarketPlace branches around the country as well as awarding individuals who have made exemplary contributions to the business,' the group said.
This year’s event saw 14 award categories in total with 160 Musgrave Wholesale Partners colleagues in attendance.
The Limerick branch received the top award due to its continued remarkable sales performance, QA audits, mystery shopper scores and employee engagement results over the course of 2019.
“This is a tremendous achievement for all of us here at Musgrave MarketPlace Limerick and we are honoured to be recognised as Region of the Year," said Jim Bourke, general manager of the Limerick branch.
'Leading the Future'
Other awards announced on the night recognised best employee initiatives for improving efficiency in the workplace, best customer service champion, as voted for by Musgrave MarketPlace customers, and best central support and commercial colleagues.
Paul Kerrigan, MarketPlace director at Musgrave MarketPlace said:"The Region of the Year awards are a great way to celebrate a strong year as well as the teams and individuals that work so hard towards our goal of leading the future of food wholesaling and convenience retailing.”
