“I’m incredibly proud of our team and their dedication to becoming the best in the industry. It is rewarding for our team to be acknowledged for continually striving to grow not only our own business, but also our retail partners’ businesses, as well as being recognized for the value the team are able to add in their individual relationships with retailers”.
“Like everyone in the convenience industry, we have been working in some pretty challenging environments in the trade over the last couple of years, but we continue to find ways to add value to our retail partners,” said Fielder.
The results of the NZACS Awards are informed by Coalface Consulting’s syndicated research project, an independent company which assists with industry-wide benchmarking between retailers and their suppliers.
Coalface Consulting’s research reports on supplier performance across Field, Head Office and total Company levels based on a range of performance attributes.
“Surveys are a really useful benchmark for both retailers and suppliers to see how they are performing within the industry,” said Fielder.
“At CCEP NZ, we are continually trying to improve, and the Coalface surveys help us to do just that. The survey results help us to identify key areas for improvement and set team goals for development and ultimately further improve our service to the industry. Winning in four categories at the NZACS Industry Awards Evening, is incredibly encouraging and shows us that we are taking steps in the right direction.”
