FE&S presents the results from the 2010 Best in Class study, where we asked foodservice professionals to rate individual factories on the following attributes:

  • Product quality
  • Product value
  • Product design and aesthetics
  • Service and support
  • Sales representation
  • Product inventory and availability
  • Product information availability

The data collected was used to create a composite score and determine the winners of FE&S’ 2010 Best in Class Awards.
