Coca-Cola Europacific Partners New Zealand (CCEP NZ) is excited to announce that it has won the Best Large Supplier award at the 2023 Liquorland Gala Dinner and Awards Night. The impressive award is voted on by franchisees at all 175 Liquorland stores across the country and the Liquorland Head Office team.
After a nearly four-year break due to Covid, the entire Liquorland franchise was reunited along with key suppliers for the annual Liquorland Conference and Liquorland Awards ceremony. Nearly 350 people were in attendance and the conference provided an opportunity for stores and suppliers to network and celebrate those that won awards. Due to the conference being delayed, this year’s awards took into consideration the performances and successes of the past three years.
The Best Large Supplier award considers all Field Sales support, Head Office support and key plans and processes such as trading plans, logistics, supply chain, and office support processes. Other categories include Best Retailer, Best Small Supplier and the internal Liquorland Values Award.
“We are incredibly proud to be awarded Best Large Supplier within Liquorland. This is an all-business recognition, and we have an outstanding team who are passionate about always delivering the best. This award and recognition ties together an amazing year for CCEP NZ where we’ve not only been recognised as Liquorland’s Best Large Supplier, but we’ve also scored exceptionally well across a number of key categories in the Coalface survey, as well as continuing to record a best practice customer net promoter scores. The Liquorland award is the cherry on top and it was great to have a chance to celebrate with our colleagues and customers,” expressed Jared Chamberlain, General Manager of the CCEP Sales Licensed team.
National Key Account Manager, Bridget Dean of CCEP NZ has been a key player in helping the business to achieve Best Large Supplier Award and accepted it on behalf of CCEP NZ on the awards night.
