3663 scoops green gold award

National foodservice supplier 3663 has won the gold award for Green Wholesaler of the Year at the Federation of Wholesale Distributors Awards (FWD).

The supplier said the award was testament to its corporate sustainable and environmental achievements over the past 12 months. According to 3663, it highlights the business’ passion and dedication to making valuable changes for the benefit of customers, suppliers and employees.

Judges for the awards said: “A very impressive record of environmental awareness gives 3663 the edge in a tight contest, particularly its systematic engagement processes with suppliers through Sustainable Futures Partnerships, and with its own staff via its Sustainability Conference. These initiatives are driven and resourced right from the top through the Sustainability Executive.”

3663 was also shortlisted for the FWD’s annual Environmental Initiative in the Wholesale Channel, Delivered Depot Manager and Delivered Wholesale Driver honours and nominated for the Pritchitts 2013 Telesales Achiever Award for outstanding customer service.

Following the awards, 3663 group commercial director Ian Crawford said: “We are thrilled to have 3663’s green credentials recognised at one of the most prestigious wholesale industry events of the year by winning this award.

“Our corporate sustainability and environmental objectives are a core element of our business focus. We have taken steps to reduce our environmental impact, as well as helping to make it easier for customers to manage theirs. The improvements we make year-on-year are benefiting our customers, suppliers and employees alike – especially in how we source and deliver our products.”
