Transport & Operations Manager, David White, nominated Peter for the award;

“Peter is a relatively new member of our driving team here at Dunsters Farm, but he’s already had a fantastic, positive impact.

“In addition to being a diligent, hard-working team member, taking on the most difficult driving routes. Peter is also especially committed to our customers, receiving extremely positive feedback from a range of our customers and colleagues.

“Our Transport team understand that a driver at a foodservice business can often be one of the only touchpoints a customer has with our organisation, and as such, we’re proud to have team members like Peter, representing Team Dunsters.”

Going the extra mile

Peter was nominated after building positive relationships with Dunsters Farm customers since joining the business. With service that goes way beyond a cheery disposition and timely deliveries, Peter has done extra hours and offered additional support – always ensuring customers are left happy, with positive feedback from many of his regular drops.

Tom Mathew, Commercial Director, said of the win;

“We’re delighted to celebrate two of our hard-working transport team at this year’s FWD Awards.
