LI Europe Sponsors Site Team of the Year at Food Manufacture Excellence Awards 2020

Jeremy Praud, Managing Director of LI Europe was delighted to present The Tulip Team from King’s Lynn with The Site Team of the Year Award at the Food Manufacture Excellence Awards.

Rachel Baldwin, VP – HR, who attended the event with Tulip’s nominees, said: “It was a great night for Tulip and I was extremely proud of our people and business.

“It was a great achievement for King’s Lynn to win Site Team of the Year after the team there successfully delivered a transformation programme which improved yields, efficiency and wastage, while embedding a culture of continuous improvement to make it a truly world class centre of excellence for sliced cooked meats. It is very rare for the same organisation to win the same award two years in succession, and with Redruth having clinched the award last year for their own turnaround story, King’s Lynn’s award shows what a remarkable job the team have done.”

We would also like to congratulate Deli Solutions for acheiving Highly Commended in the same category.

Testimonials

Inspiring the people in our business to understand how they can improve and the business can therefore develop, is an important building block in our drive for improving efficiency within our business. Engaging everyone in the business to realise that we can be better and any little improvement drives down to the bottom line. This has been seen both in the way the staff have engaged and enjoyed the experience and the evidence of reduced costs has helped the business to become more efficient. This process never stops but it is the tools that have been developed by LI Europe that has allowed us to deliver this important work at both our potato pack houses.
