Zip-Pak®, the global leader in zipper technology, was named Supplier of the Year for 2014 by Tyson Foods, Inc. (NYSE: TSN) at a luncheon held last April at its world headquarters in Springdale, Ark. Zip-Pak was one of eight suppliers to be acknowledged at the event.
Zip-Pak provides zipper solutions for a number of Tyson Foods brand chicken, beef and pork products that are marketed in resealable flexible packaging. Zip-Pak was selected for the award based on supply-chain performance, total cost of ownership, pricing programs, customer-service performance, sustainability initiatives, and other performance metrics observed by Tyson Foods throughout the year.
“We are grateful to be acknowledged by Tyson Foods,” says Zip-Pak president and general manager Art Malcomson. “This achievement represents the dedicated efforts of so many Zip-Pak personnel throughout our company who work hard every day to support our customers with the highest quality zipper solutions. It also signifies the great and long-standing partnership between Tyson Foods and Zip-Pak, together always striving to deliver outstanding products to the marketplace. We look forward to the journey ahead, and to continuing to reaffirm Tyson Foods’ recognition of Zip-Pak as a key supplier for the success of their brands.”
