“Pet Age’s Distributor of the Year Award was created to recognize accomplishments in service, technology, innovation and sustainability, and we are thrilled at the opportunity to recognize these successes and what it means to our industry,” said Craig Rexford, vice president and publisher of Pet Age. “Our inaugural and very deserving recipient, Philips Pet Food and Supplies, was nominated by peers of key influencers, retailers, manufacturers and industry representatives, and our awards ceremony during SuperZoo 2014 in Las Vegas will not only provide the opportunity to honor Philips for their achievements, but also highlight the important role that distributors play in our industry to service the needs of independent business.”
This private dinner and awards presentation, to be held July 21, will celebrate Phillips Pet Food & Supplies and their achievements in service excellence to the pet industry.
“We are sincerely honored to be recognized for Pet Age’s Distributor of the Year Award,” said Blaine Phillips, chief executive officer of Phillips Pet Food & Supplies. “Independent retailers symbolize the heart of this industry, as well as the root of Phillips’ early days as an independent feed store in 1938. Because we are family rooted and committed to providing exceptional service to keep the independent pet channel thriving, Phillips is proud of the support and innovation we offer. From our dedicated independent sales team to our own truck fleet, from state of the art technologies to innovative solutions such as our new iT Kit, we want to service the independent with the utmost attention to service excellence.”
