“This is a wonderful endorsement of the work done and dedication shown by so many Glanbia Ireland teams involved in supplying our long-standing customer Diageo. In the last 18 months alone, our teams have shown great agility in responding to the challenges caused by Covid.

 “Throughout it all, the Glanbia Ireland team has kept excellent service and quality to the fore for this key customer and others. This quality award recognises that phenomenal team effort and I want to commend everyone for the part they played.”

The first annual Global Brand Supply Supplier Awards recognise and celebrate the supplier partners and agencies that have driven value for Diageo by delivering outstanding quality, innovation, service and performance.

The eight winners of the various categories go forward to the overall Global Procurement Awards. The awards will take place in December.

“Congratulations to all of this year’s Global Brand Supply award winners. The service and support our supplier and agency partners provide is critical to the success of our business, across all stages of our end-to-end supply chain. It was fantastic to be able to recognise and celebrate with them during our virtual awards ceremony.”

To earn the quality award, the competition criteria required that the supplier had to demonstrate the outstanding quality of the goods/services that it has provided Diageo.
