Belgian pork producer Westvlees was named Dalziel’s Top Supplier of the Year for its outstanding performance in sales growth.

Since the introduction in June of Dalziel’s own pork brand Glenvale Pork under an exclusive partnership with Westvlees, Dalziel has seen a 94 per cent increase in its pork sales with Westvlees products.

Dalziel’s former chairman Sandy Dalziel presented Westvlees UK sales manager Michael Catry with the company’s award.

Mr Catry said: “We are delighted to receive this award from Dalziel.  Westvlees continuously invests in the highest international quality and food safety standards to guarantee Glenvale’s premium quality status.

At the same event, Dalziel also recognised its own top performing depots and sales people with a selection of awards after a highly successful year.
