Ria scoops Walmart Services’ Supplier of the Year Award a second time

Service excellence is something we strive for.

We are always aiming to exceed expectations and to surprise and delight our customers and business partners.

And it seems that this ethos is paying off, as Ria has just been awarded the Walmart Services Supplier of the Year Award for the second year running. This is not only a first for Ria, it’s also the first consecutive win for this award amongst all Walmart Services suppliers.

During the 2014 Walmart Services Supplier Summit, Ria also scooped the Price Award. In 2015, as well as clinching the coveted Supplier of the Year prize, Ria also received the Service Excellence Award.

And we couldn’t be prouder.
