Nominate a company for Refrigerated & Frozen Foods’ 6th Annual Sustainable Supply Chain of the Year Award. This award honors a cold food processor-shipper for its year-over-year carbon footprint reduction, including significant supply chain carbon reduction, optimizing a supply chain network, enhancing logistics and transportation models or increasing “green” awareness through internal corporate sustainability programs.

Operating according to a sustainable corporate responsibility structure is more than just a report that’s issued every year—it’s the only way to do business.

Who can submit nomination forms?

Food companies, A/E and design-build firms, suppliers or others qualified to provide a detailed rationale for a particular company or facility.

The criteria includes:

  • Must be a U.S. refrigerated and/or frozen foods processor.
  • Must showcase studies/reports/data of carbon reduction, supply chain network and/or packaging optimization, increased “green” awareness through internal corporate sustainability programs and more.
  • Must provide these stats in the nomination form to be considered.
  • Must be available for executive interviews in person or by phone/email.
  • The winner will receive a plaque, and appear on the cover of our May 2016 issue (both in print and in digital format). The winner will also be promoted in Refrigerated & Frozen Foods’ promo materials and social media channels.
Submissions due March 1, 2016.
