McInerneys SuperValu of Loughrea has beaten off stiff competition from hundreds of excellent Irish businesses in its bid to make the elite list of finalists The National Q Mark Awards, which are held annually by the Excellence Ireland Quality Association (EIQA ).
The official announcement of this select list of finalists came from Irene Collins, EIQA’s managing director. Ms Collins said that to be nominated for such an award serves as recognition that the services provided by a company far surpass current legislative requirements, that the team involved conduct their affairs with the customers’ best interests in mind, and most importantly, that the business itself is operating at the highest standard of performance in the country.
Awards schemes are about celebrating achievement and encouraging a sense of further improvement for all nominees. The Q Mark is recognised as a beacon of excellence, a standard which supermarkets are proud to display and their customers are happy to trust. The Q Mark has a staggering 87 per cent recognition status among Irish consumers; it is a testament to this country’s appreciation for quality and excellence.
