When it comes to communication and collaboration, nobody does it better than theTyson Foodservice Group . That's whatInternational Foodservice Distributors Association(IFDA) members said in voting for the IDFA's 2008 "Supplier of the Year" award. Tyson was one of 45 foodservice processor suppliers reviewed on the basis of (1) conveying product information, (2) working with the distributor sales force, (3) quality of sales training material, (4) communicating advertising and promotional information, and (5) availability of company representatives to handle account issues.
Tyson, Springdale, Ark., won the award for the third consecutive year. Others receiving recognition were Kellogg's Food Away-From-Home business and General Mills Bakeries & Foodservice. IFDA recently honored Tyson during the association's 2009 IFDA Partners Executive Forum at Amelia Island, Fla.
