The award was given as part of Gordon’s annual VIP Awards, which are comprised of six categories of recognition, honoring supplier partners for excellence in continuous improvement, service and strategic alignment, supply chain and customer relationship metrics, vision and branding, and commitment to inclusiveness and diversity. Of the six categories, the Cornerstone Partner Award is the highest achievement.
“The VIP awards program is an annual highlight for us, as we gather with valued vendors and honor their contributions to Gordon Food Service,” said Dean Noble, COO of Gordon. “Our ability to provide outstanding service to our customers is directly linked to the quality and performance of our supplier partners.”
“We are deeply honored to receive the Cornerstone Award,” said Todd Baumann, Vice President of Aunt Millie’s Bakehouse. “We hold Gordon Food Service in the highest esteem as a customer and partner. Performance like this can only be made possible with a strong business partnership and teamwork from so many between both companies. We are also extremely proud to have been given this award for seven years in a row – more than anyone else in the bakery category.”
