MRC take top European titles

A leading ingredients supplier is celebrating after landing a top European award. The Manchester Rusk Company (MRC) took two titles at the European Business Awards in Rome recently.

MRC was declared overall category winner of the European Business Environmental Awareness Award and was also a recipient of the Ruban D'Honneur for Customer Focus.

The European Business Awards (EBA) programme is a showcase of business excellence, best practice and innovation in the European Union.

MRC is a privately owned family business, established for over 30 years supplying the food industry with over 2.3 million kilos of high-quality glazes, marinades, coatings and seasonings, including the popular Flava-it™ range – and half a million litres of sauces each year.

MRC's production manager Dave Wheeler said: "We are delighted that our efforts have been recognised in this way. Good environmental practices should be at the heart of everything a business does – both in terms of environmental impact, cost reduction and managing resources to most effectively meet the needs of the customer."
