Supreme Feeds rewards distributors for good partnership

Pandagric Novum Limited, manufacturers of Supreme Feeds, hosted and rewarded its distributors across Nigeria with recognition awards and cash gifts at its annual Distributors Conference held in Abuja weekend.

The event tagged ‘Partners for Growth’, conference brought together distributors from all 36 states to recognize their efforts and get feedback for better customer satisfaction.

This year’s conference is hinged on fostering a stronger relationship between the company and its distributors and rewarding them for their patronage over the years.

Bruce Spain, chief executive officer, spoke on the need to partner with customers to tackle the challenges of poultry feed businesses in Nigeria. According to him, “We understand the difficulties that abound in carrying out this kind of business in Nigeria, and so, it became imperative for us to form a close-knit community where we welcome distributors into our Supreme Feeds network and reward them for their efforts.

“I can see the excitement on their faces, I see a bit of myself in them. The passion our customers share in our interest is why we want them to have a rewarding business that will expand their market shares. We brought them here to Abuja to honour them because their success is our success.”
