Greencore and the The Co-operative were announced as the winners of the award for ‘Food-to-Go Operator of the Year’ at the IGD Awards 2016, held in London last night.
The awards recognise the best of the retail and grocery industry and celebrate the achievements of our industry.
Commenting on the Greencore & Co-operative award Leendert den Hollander, Vice President & General Manager at Coca-Cola European Partners, said:
“What really impressed the judges about this entry was that collaboration was at the heart of it. It was great to see Greencore and The Co-operative working together towards the same goal, solely focused around the shopper.
In the fast growing food-to-go category, it is also essential that companies get the basics right, which is just what these businesses have done; they started with the basics, reviewed the quality of their offering and tailored their ranges.”
