Orlando, FL, Nov. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mérieux Nutrisciences, a leading food safety and quality partner offering testing, labeling, auditing, consulting, sensory, training and research services to the food & nutrition industry, was awarded Top Supply Partner by QCS Purchasing, LLC on Tuesday, November 7th during the annual QCS Leadership Conference.

QCS Purchasing, a long time partner of the Chicago-based food testing lab, is a member-owned buying group that has purchasing programs with approximately 150 supply partners and over 450 active partners. The QCS leadership conference is a valuable opportunity for members and supply partners to communicate the issues most impacting their business, find and develop solutions and discuss issues affecting both sides of the relationship.

“Each year the award recognizes one supply partner who has demonstrated full engagement with our members throughout the year. QCS measures this engagement through objective and subjective criteria including volume growth, number of members doing business with the supply partner, innovation, quality and service,” says Ray Collins, Vice President Program Development for QCS.

“Mérieux Nutrisciences won this award for incredible service, growth through an attractive offering to our members, support of the food industry and flexibility in meeting member company needs. This is the highest award our organization offers,” states Collins.

“Mérieux Nutrisciences and QCS Purchasing has had a strong partnership that spans almost a decade. Both companies commitment to food safety and quality has enabled us to tackle the issues that face the food industry as a collaboration versus a typical supplier-customer relationship,” Mérieux Nutrisciences’ President for North America, Jim Miller, states. “We are deeply honored to be the recipients of this award and grateful for our lasting partnership with QCS.”
