AmeriCold Facility Wins Heinz Silver Soup Bowl Award

Heinz Foodservice has named AmeriCold Logistics Clearfield facility the winner of the 2004 Silver Soup Bowl Award, which is given to the highest-performing warehouse in the Heinz Foodservice temperature-controlled network. This is the second year of competition for the award.

The Silver Soup Bowl Award was established in 2002 by Heinz Foodservice and is awarded annually to the top-performing temperature-controlled distribution facility. The distribution facilities are evaluated and scored monthly on key performance indicators, including outstanding customer orientation, inventory accuracy, inbound and outbound loading performance, on-time delivery performance, percent of cases shipped, and timeliness of reports. AmeriCold’s Clearfield facility achieved the honor by showing the most consistency across categories and registering a significant improvement in on-time deliveries. The competition covers the Heinz Foodservice products under the Chef Francisco, Quality Chef Foods and Domani brands.

“The competition was tight again this year,” said Andrew Spears, manager foodservice—frozen logistics for Heinz Foodservice. “This contest has been an asset to our customers because we’ve seen it improve our service levels across the country.”
