Whole Foods Market named Cox’s Wholesale Seafood the winner of its Best in Class Award, Perishable Supplier in the grocer’s inaugural Supplier Awards. Whole Foods Market launched the awards to spotlight vendors who best embody the grocer’s mission and core values.
The Tampa, Fla.-based seafood provider was one of only 17 companies to receive a Supplier Award from the natural and organic retailer. Awardees were selected by Whole Foods Market global buyers and experts who work side-by-side with hundreds of national suppliers to bring products to market.
Cox’s Seafood was honored in the Best in Class category for delivering premium quality seafood from boat to store in record time. Steve Cox, president and founder, accepted the award at Whole Foods Market’s Supplier Awards dinner, which was held at the Stephen F. Austin Hotel in Austin, Texas.
