BanaBay has made a big impression in the ‘fresh produce Oscars’ having been announced as finalists in two out of only four categories in the Fresh Produce Consortium, Fresh Awards.
The Individual Excellence Award has spotted new talent in rising star Yuchi Li, Senior Business Development Manager at BanaBay who has been instrumental in building banana sales in China and overseeing the establishment of the Shanghai office.
The Supply Chain Excellence Award highlights BanaBay’s signature business approach which centres on giving customers a direct souring agreement to ensure better business relationships, dedicated service and higher quality fruit from plantation to customer.
BanaBay’s MD Mark O’Sullivan is excited to have made the finals: “This is great news for BanaBay and the team because it recognises both the way we do business and the people who are driving our success.”
The contenders for the Fresh Awards were described by the organisers as ‘shining examples of creativity, innovation and commercial success’ and the winners will be announced on Thursday 4th June as part of the London Produce Show where BanaBay will be introducing the delights of its plantains in an exotic cookery masterclass.
