Dale Farm, the UK-based dairy co-op, was named Nothern Ireland Supplier of the Year for the second consecutive year at the Costcutter Supermarkets Group’s (CSG) annual Supplier of the Year Awards, the first company to do so.
As reported by Agriland, the group competed with over 150 CSG suppliers from across the UK.
Sam Boyd, regional sales manager for Dale Farm, said that the accolade represents “significant industry recognition” for its business practices and performances.
“This year was a particularly positive year for us as we worked in close partnership with CSG to adapt and increase our in-store dairy range, and we have further plans in place to expand our product portfolio over the months ahead,” Boyd said.
“Due to the exceptionally warm summer weather this year, we were able to increase distribution significantly to successfully support CSG stores and meet demand.”
This year, Dale Farm also became the lead milk supplier to CSG stores.
Huw Edwards, Trading director at CSG, congratulated Dale Farm on its accolade which recognises “the fantastic service” it has provided.
“This exceptional achievement is proof of Dale Farm’s commitment to providing first-class products and service, ensuring our stores offer the consumer the very best in dairy, every day,” Edwards said.
