17 November 2022: Caprice Australia, a strategic cross-category supplier who has partnered with BIG W since 1970, has been named BIG W Supplier of the Year.
BIG W hosted its first Supplier of the Year Awards last night in Sydney yesterday to celebrate and recognise suppliers and team members who have made significant contributions to BIG W and our customers over the past 12 months.
Caprice Australia was recognized for their ongoing commitment to supporting BIG W to make a real difference for families through their customer focus, ways of working, data-led decision-making, end-to-end collaboration, alignment with the BIG W strategy and distinctive product offer which truly resonates with BIG W customers.
Amscan was recognised as BIG W Sustainability Supplier of the Year for their clear focus and commitment to building a better future. This has been demonstrated through their sustainability initiatives with a clear plan to deliver these in our stores between now and 2025, including a plastic-free paper tableware solution and removing single use plastics throughout their range.
Congratulations to all award nominees and winners last night.
