Nestle Award 3Nestlé Deutschland AG conferred its Supplier Award for the fourth time. The award is presented to exemplary suppliers who, on the basis of core criteria such as innovation, service and cooperation as well as sustainability and flexibility, stand for an extraordinarily successful partnership.


Nestlé is one of the largest food producers in the world and has been an important business partner of the Emsland Group for many years. The award ceremony took place in Frankfurt-Niederrad, where Nestlé Germany CEO Marc Boersch and Purchasing Manager Gaby Symonds thanked their suppliers. Around 100 guests attended the award ceremony – including representatives of the 20 suppliers nominated in advance. The Emsland Group won the Bronze Supplier Award. Coming in third out of more than 11,000 suppliers was an excellent result. Nestlé’s jury based their decision on the following criteria: innovation and cooperation at the application technology level, reliability of supply and delivery, flexibility and responsible sourcing. The Emsland Group impressed the jury with:

· Close cooperation between R&D and recipe optimization to achieve Clean Label standards

· 100% delivery rate

· Introduction and successful implementation of the VMI structure (procurement and planning portal)

· The highest rating for responsible sourcing (Smeta)


Considering that the Emsland Group is the only raw material supplier honored with an award, this is an even more successful result.


The award is the result of the joint effort by all departments involved and years of optimization in the areas of production, quality management, SCM and innovation.
