Shamrock Foods, the largest independent foodservice distributor in the West, announced its 7th Annual Supplier of the Year Awards at its 2021 Supplier Summit taking place in Cabo San Lucas.

“Being able to reunite in person for this year’s Supplier Summit event made the connection and collaboration with our supplier partners stronger than ever,” said John Roussel, Chief Operating Officer for Shamrock Foods. “We’re incredibly proud of the partnerships we’ve built with our suppliers and the way in which they have come to the table to help support our mutual customers.”
