Alliance received the award for the third consecutive year in 2017, which is based on year-over-year sales growth. This is the first time any broker has earned the honor three years in a row.
“We’re extremely proud to achieve an unprecedented ‘three-peat’ of this prestigious award,” said Sal Stazzone, president and CEO of Alliance. “This is a great example of the special results that can be achieved when a manufacturer and its broker engage in a true business partnership. This was a direct result of a tremendous effort between the Hormel team led by Marc Lipari and Alliance’s seven-member Hormel sales team working together to generate three straight years of significant sales increases.”
One of the top clients for Alliance Foods and Hormel is their sales partner Save-a-lot food stores which is a $6 billion retailer.
In addition to its business at Save-a-Lot, Alliance provides manufacturers with sales representation through its national sales & marketing division, which covers the entire US in all major retail channels, including grocery, mass, drug, c-store, club and military.
