Nestlé claims Woolworths Supplier of the Year prize
Nestlé Australia Limited was awarded with the title of Woolworths Supplier of the Year at the annual ceremony in Sydney on Friday 5 December.
The award meant that the world’s largest food manufacturer became the first company to receive the honour twice, having previously earned the title in 2004. They also took the prizes for New Product Launch of the Year and the Grocery (over $50m) category.
