IVE was named Coles Group’s 2023 Service and Innovation Partner of the Year at their annual Supplier Awards.
Coles Group CEO Leah Weckert congratulated all the winners and finalists and thanked all suppliers for their commitment to providing customers with best-quality products, and supporting Coles’ purpose to help all Australians lead healthier, happier lives.
“I want to express my appreciation – and that of our 120,000 team members and millions of customers – for the support of our suppliers. We’re delighted they’ve chosen to partner, build and grow their organisations with us,” Leah said.
IVE has long partnered with Coles producing in-store weekly catalogues and monthly magazines showcasing their specials and seasonal recipes.
IVE Group CEO Matt Aitken said, “During COVID when supply chains were challenged globally, IVE leant on its established supply network and committed $45m to chartering two break bulk carriers from Europe to ensure our clients didn’t run out of paper, meaning their customers continued to feel connected at a time they needed it most.”
“Thank you to the Coles Group team for their ongoing, collaborative and progressive partnership.”
