The Vietnam Supply Chain, national association for supply chain professionals awards, which was held in Ho Chi Minh City and attended by over 300 business leaders, honours the best practice of businesses and individuals in the supply chain industry in Vietnam.

The company has increased its employee engagement level from 57 per cent in 2010 to 80 per cent in 2013.

It has a culture of continuous improvement with 96 Kaizen projects and 47 individual Lean Six Sigma certifications this year. The company also recently celebrated 25 years of operating in Vietnam through its highly successful joint venture with Phong Phu Corporation, a state-owned textile company and member of Vietnam National Textile & Garment Corporation.
