The Excellence Award recognizes managers and their teams who are willing to go the extra mile, who are putting all their passion into their work and, thus, have made a positive impact on the company in the past fiscal year. The Awards are given for each of Barry Callebaut's five company values: customer focus, passion, entrepreneurship, team spirit and integrity.
Following the tradition, the Excellence Award winners 2015 were announced during Barry Callebaut's yearly Managers' Conference end of September. They were handed over by the former company's CEO, Juergen Steinemann, and Chairman, Andreas Jacobs.
