This year Mars Chocolate bestowed a Quality Focus Initiative Award for ‘Perfect Performance’ on Mondi Poznan, a plant in the Mondi Consumer Packaging network. Employees at the site set a rare industry performance benchmark in 2016: a zero-percent claim rate on deliveries. Located in Poland, Mondi Poznan supplies Mars Chocolate’s Polish operations in Janaszówek with laminates for Milky Way wrappers.

The award highlights Mondi’s commitment to its customers along the value chain – from the inception to the implementation of packaging solutions. At Mars’ 2017 Quality Focus Initiative dinner Tatyana Belova, Supplier Quality Assurance Manager Mars, presented the award acknowledging the employees’ hard work, diligence and customer focus. Bettina Voithofer, Mondi Key Account Manager for Mars Chocolate accepted on their behalf.

With the Quality Focus Initiative, Mars Chocolate rewards suppliers’ outstanding performance in several categories and, at the same time, motivates them to set and follow best practices in years to come. For their work, Mondi Poznan received a cash prize earmarked for social purposes.

Georg Kasperkovitz, CEO Consumer Packaging, commented: “Our Mars key account team and everyone at Mondi Poznan exemplify what it means to see the world through the customers’ eyes. Understanding customer needs from the customer perspective enables us to achieve excellence on their behalf, every day. Congratulations and thanks to everyone who made this award possible. Praise from a company of Mars’ caliber represents the highest of accolades.”
