Presenting the award to Keystone, Chris Yong, Senior Supply Chain Manager, McDonald’s UK, commented: “The Performance Supplier of the Year is awarded to the supplier who most consistently delivers, fully embracing the concept of right place, right time and right product. Against a backdrop of record volume growth and increasing operational complexity, Keystone Distribution has consistently outperformed against their service and cost targets over the past three years, reinventing the way in which they measure themselves against our requirements to ensure that service levels to all restaurants are continually improved.”
Bryan Jones, Managing Director, Keystone Distribution UK, added: “We are delighted to have received this award from McDonald’s. This recognition is a testament to our unwavering focus on striving for excellence and directly contributing to the continuing success of our customer.”
The accolade was presented to Keystone at the annual McDonald’s Supply Chain Conference and follows the company’s success at the 2011 CILT (Chartered Institute for Logistics and Transport) Annual Awards for Excellence where Keystone and McDonald’s received a joint award in the Environmental Improvement category.
