High Liner Foods Receives Arby's® Red Hat Supplier Achievement Award15:25 EDT Thursday, November 01, 2012 DANVERS, Mass. (Business Wire) -- High Liner Foods, the leading seafood supplier in North America, announced today that it 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 Arby's system. Selected alongside only seven other suppliers, High Liner Foods was honored during the 2012 Arby's Worldwide Franchise Convention, October 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.” “We have a longstanding relationship with Arby's and we're proud to partner with such a leading quick-service restaurant brand,” said Steve Prusank, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for High Liner Foods. “The Lenten promotion recognized by the Red Hat award is just one example of how our close collaboration creates successful product initiatives that help set customers such as Arby's apart.” To stay connected with High Liner Foodservice on Facebook, visit www.facebook.com/HighLinerFoodservice.
