Sainsbury’s CEO Justin King said: “We’re delighted to have received this accolade, which is a fitting tribute to the hard work and dedication to outstanding service of the 157,000 Sainsbury’s colleagues in our stores, depots and support centres. I’d like to thank every one of them for their efforts in 2013, and I’m also grateful to QBA and the judges for their recognition of this teamwork.”
