Santa Monica Seafood held its 11th Annual Supplier Summit on February 20th at the Hyatt Regency in Long Beach, California. Representatives from 150 of their top suppliers were in attendance.
In addition to discussing 2017 achievements and growth plans for 2018, awards were given in three categories in recognition of superior service to Santa Monica Seafood in 2017.
Proudfoot received Service Provider of the Year for completing a comprehensive revamp of all areas of operations for the company, resulting in many operational changes, improving efficiencies and profitability across the board.
Roger O’Brien, President and CEO of Santa Monica Seafood said, “Choosing each of our three winners is something our entire Leadership Team, as well as our Procurement team, put a lot of thought and debate into. We can buy the product and obtain services from numerous sources. However, we are looking for Suppliers and Service Providers that have gone above-and-beyond to help us reduce our costs, improve our operations and are desirous of continuing to grow and expand with us. Santa Monica Seafood needs to be the best; therefore, our Suppliers and Service Providers need to be the best. These three winners are just that – the best!”
“We are thrilled to receive this honor,” said Proudfoot CEO, Pamela Hackett. “and to have the opportunity to partner with Santa Monica Seafood (SMS), a true leader in the Food Industry. The joint Santa Monica Seafood and Proudfoot team have a lot to be proud of - they have truly transformed the way SMS does business.”
