Massachusetts-based High Liner Foods, a North American seafood supplier, has been awarded a Red Hat Supplier Achievement Award by Arby's Restaurant Group Inc. and ARCOP Inc., the national supply chain cooperative for Arby's, for supporting the brand's Lenten promotions of its fish sandwich.
The Red Hat Supplier Achievement Awards spotlight Arby's suppliers who have provided superior levels of service and support to the chain's system. Selected alongside seven other suppliers, High Liner Foods was honored during the 2012 Arby's Worldwide Franchise Convention, Oct. 7-10 in Las Vegas.
"With demand for delicious seafood menu items being so high during the Lenten season, it's critical that we have a consistent supply," said David Cox, president of ARCOP. "High Liner Foods added numerous overtime production shifts to help us out. By rearranging shipping, expediting raw materials and sourcing a new breading system to keep restaurants in supply of the fish, High Liner made this a hugely successful promotion."
Steve Prusank, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing for High Liner Foods, said the supplier has a longstanding relationship with Arby's and the Lenten promotion is just one example of the close collaboration.
