BAKERSFIELD, CA – With eyes set on remaining an exemplary partner to its retail customers, Grimmway Farms has recently been recognized for its stature in leadership, partnership, and commitment in regards to the buy-side sector. The company recently received the highly-coveted 2016 Produce Vendor of the Year Award from Albertsons, Vons, and Pavilions of Southern California.
“All of us at Grimmway Farms are honored to receive this distinguished award,” said Jeff Huckaby, President. “Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions of Southern California are significant patrons of both our organic and conventional produce, so this recognition is particularly meaningful to us as it validates our commitment to these partnerships and our long-standing promise to all of our customers.”
Senior executives from Albertsons, Vons, and Pavilions presented the award to Huckaby at a recent awards luncheon ceremony held in Fullerton, California, according to a press release.
