Yamato was nominated for, and won, the Supplier Quality Award category in the Nestle Supplier of the Year Awards. The winner was announced at a gala awards event held at the Rose Suite, Twickenham on Thursday 1 February.
The award recognises the supplier with the mindset and performance that puts quality at the fore front and has delivered consistent and excellent quality.
Yamato won the award because it met best in class quality delivery and demonstrated a commitment to continuous improvement in quality.
Andrea Spencer, commercial operations manager at Yamato, said: “We are delighted to have won this award. Quality and service are at the heart of what we do so it is great when valued customers, like Nestlé, recognise us in this way.
“We understand the vital role we, as suppliers, play in supporting our customers’ performance, reputation and growth.
“The consequences of substandard quality affect all organisations in the supply chain and, ultimately, have a detrimental effect on the relationship between our customers and their consumers.
“Over the ten years that we have worked with Nestlé, our commitment has been to deliver a consistently high-quality standard, so we are delighted to be recognised in this way.”
