DENVER--()--Continuing to uphold its reputation for quality lamb products and excellent service, Superior Farms proudly received the Sysco Denver Silver Supplier Award last Friday. The annual award is based on sales growth, visibility, engagement, support of the Sysco sales team and marketing contribution.
“Sysco is one of our best customers and we are proud to consistently bring them high quality lamb for their distribution”
“We are thrilled to be considered for this category and win,” said Craig Powell, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Superior Farms. “We know we have a great product, but it’s equally important to us that we be a good partner to our customers.”
Vivian Brooks, Category Manager for Sysco Denver said, “Superior Farms is a Colorado company that we have a long-term relationship with.
