Our annual member and supplier awards dinner took place on the evening of Wednesday 8th March 2023 where our independent wholesalers and supplier partners were recognised for their outstanding achievements in 2022 in a variety of categories.
These awards recognise the important support and engagement in Unitas central initiatives, along with key relationship with it’s stakeholders. In the first instance the Unitas central team analysed performance based on a set of pre-determined criteria to develop a shortlist. The shortlisted members and suppliers were then judged by the relevant Unitas trading committee wholesalers and top performing suppliers, again based on a set of pre-determined criteria. Both scores were then combined to reveal the overall winner in each award category.
All proceeds from this year’s charity raffle were donated to the Brain Tumour Charity, continuing the work of former Parfetts Managing Director and Unitas board member, Greg Suszczcenia. Thank you to all of this year’s sponsoring suppliers for your generosity and fantastic prizes.
Here are the awards for 2022 along with the shortlisted and winning members and suppliers in each of those categories.
