Central Garden & Pet is extremely proud to announce that we were awarded the Walmart Supplier of the Year award in the Lawn and Garden segment. Out of 12 awards that Walmart presented to their Lawn & Garden supplier base, Central garnered an incredible eight nominations. Additionally, Central was awarded the H3 award (Humble, Hustle, and Hungry) and the Innovation award, making the company the biggest winner of the day. With over 600 people in attendance, representing over 200 suppliers, the competition for this year’s awards appeared formidable. The Supplier of the Year award was based on overall performance across different categories such as sales, profitability, inventory management, people, innovation and private label. Central was proud to take home this award, which was voted on by Walmart’s buying staff. The H3 honor was awarded to four companies including Central. Lastly, the Innovation award was won for the development of the Expert Gardener Potting Soil Program, which substantially exceeded expectations.
