The Carpigiani Group has been awarded McDonald’s coveted Global Reliability Award, which recognises the supplier whose products have the highest reliability score, and consistently meet or exceed all reliability thresholds.
Andrea Cocchi, CEO of Carpigiani Group, received the accolade for 2017 from Jim Fox, McDonald’s corporate vice president of restaurant solutions, at a recent ceremony held in Orlando, Florida, during the 2018 Worldwide Convention of the global food giant.
Fox commented: “This company has a reputation for strongly recognising the importance of reliability to McDonald’s and its customers.
“Over the years, it has consistently focused on the quality and reliability of its equipment components and manufacturing capabilities. It has maintained its reliability scores under McDonald’s required threshold consistently for more than 7 years. Among all the complex pieces of equipment in the McDonald’s system it is the only supplier to achieve such results.”
The ice cream machine manufacturer also received the McDonald’s Innovation Award in 2015.
Paul Ingram, MD of Carpigiani UK, added: “We are absolutely delighted to have won McDonald’s Global Reliability Award, which is a fantastic acknowledgement of the quality of our products and our commitment to the highest standards of service.
“Industry recognition, such as this high profile award, is a great reward for the expertise, passion and commitment of the Carpigiani team worldwide. It also recognises the value we place on developing strength and trust within all our industry relationships.”
