NEW ORLEANS, LA - Veg-Fresh Farms has been selected as the 2015 Supplier of the Year by fast-food giant Checkers Drive-In Restaurants.
“Veg-Fresh Farms is a long-term supplier who has been supplying our restaurants with quality produce at competitive pricing since the mid-1990’s,” explained Patti Dumars, the Senior Director Supply Chain Management for Checkers. “They are a company that makes all of our jobs easier because you don’t have to worry about them – they can always be counted on for excellent service.”
Checkers’ award recognizes vendors that are committed to service, with on-time deliveries, and outstanding quality and consistency, the company explains in a press release. At their annual conference on September 11, Checkers concluded the event by announcing its top vendors and suppliers at a dinner ceremony at the Hyatt Regency.
“They go above and beyond to take care of our brands. They conduct frequent visits to the growing facilities and to our distribution centers to monitor quality handling and service,” Dumars continued.
Even when Checkers was in the midst of distribution changes and seeking several new sources of supply for the second time in five years, Veg-Fresh Farms executed flawlessly and without interruption, Dumars concluded.
