The top-performing meat suppliers of the year for retail butchery specialist Dalziel have been awarded at the firm’s second annual supplier awards.

Awards recognised commitment and excellence in service, quality of product, consistency and product development.

“Our customers nationwide trust us to deliver the highest-quality meat products, and we are proud to recognise our suppliers who go the extra mile to help us fulfil our promise,” said Dalziel’s meat sales director David Whyatt.

Award winners and their categories were:

Pork Traders Oakwell – Best Gammon Supplier
Westvlees – Best Pork Supplier
Dunbia – Best Irish Beef Supplier
A K Stoddart – Best Scotch Beef Supplier
Vriesekoop – Best Poultry Supplier

In addition to Best Pork Supplier, Belgian pork producer Westvlees was also named Dalziel’s Top Supplier of the Year.

“We are delighted to receive this award from Dalziel,” said Michael Catry, Westvlees’ UK sales manager.

Since Dalziel partnered with Westvlees in June to produce Dalziel’s own brand, Glenvale Pork, they have seen a reported increase in pork sales of 94%.

“Westvlees continuously invests in the highest international quality and food safety standards to guarantee Glenvale’s premium-quality status,” continued Catry.

“We have a strong relationship working together for 15 years, and we look forward to many more successful collaborations over the coming years.”

This is the third exclusive meat brand by Dalziel. It joins the likes of premium gammon brand Oakwell Gold, in conjunction with Pork Traders Oakwell, and its Drovers beef range, in partnership with Dunbia.

Suppliers were not the only ones recognised at the event. Dalziel’s own best-performing depots and sales people were presented with a selection of awards following a successful year.
