IFDA Introduces the IFDA Distributor's Choice Awards

New awards program celebrates outstanding performance and remarkable partnerships    
 

IFDA's IFDA Distributor's Choice Awards program gives IFDA distributor members the unique opportunity to reward their most hardworking manufacturing partners. Foodservice distributors voted on foodservice manufacturer performance on collaboration, product innovation, sales and marketing support, and other issues critical to the success of distributors and the overall supply chain in the fall of 2021. The program brings much deserved recognition to those trading partners that go above and beyond. The awards honor one exceptional IFDA Partner for each of four categories, as well as one overall program winner.

Distributor's Choice Awards FAQs

Who can vote?
IFDA distributor members will be invited to participate via email. The votes are individual, so several employees from the same foodservice distribution company may cast their votes. We're looking for YOUR opinion on doing business with these manufacturers.
 
How does voting work?
Casting your vote is easy: simply pick one exceptional IFDA Partner for each of the four categories. You may select the same company for multiple categories, but only one company per category. If you don't have an opinion on a specific category, you may skip it by selecting N/A. 

When will winners be announced?
The winners will be announced and honored at the 2022 IFDA’s Partners Executive Forum.
