Freshway Foods Associates Honored at Appreciation Luncheon

Thousands of dollars in awards, including a 55” HD television, were distributed to Freshway Foods associates at the company’s Associate Appreciation Luncheon on Tuesday. The company holds the Appreciation Luncheon monthly to thank its associates for their hard work and dedication.

Freshway associates were recognized for achieving 5, 10 and 15 years of service with the company. In addition, production associate Glenna Murray was honored for 20 years of service with the company.

Company co-owner Phil Gilardi praised Glenna as an outstanding representative for Freshway. “Every time I host a customer tour, I make a point of stopping by her area,” Gilardi said. “She is always smiling and always positive, and she lives our company values every day.”

The company awarded gift cards and a 55” HD television to associates who qualified for the company’s quarterly incentive program drawing. Associates qualify for the drawing by maintaining perfect attendance and a positive safety record.  Additional information about the quarterly recognition is available at

In addition to the quarterly incentive program drawing and service awards, the company holds an annual company picnic and a health fair for associates and their families. Freshway Logistics, the company’s forward distribution and logistics company, also awards its drivers for achieving safe driving milestones with membership in the Million Mile Club.
