Winners of the 2013 WUWM Market Awards announced

The winners of the World Union of Wholesale Markets (WUWM) gold, silver and bronze 2013 Market Awards were announced during the closing dinner of the 28th WUWM Congress, hosted by the Lo Valledor Wholesale Market in Santiago, Chile on 25 October.

Wholesale markets from every continent of the world competed for a place in these awards which addressed the theme: 'Logistical Excellence".

The Spanish wholesale market, Mercazaragoza, won the gold award for both a logistics development and maritime terminal expansion which uses containers for fresh product logistics.

The Silver award went to the wholesale market of Antioquia in Colombia for a new traceable, automated system solution to vehicle control on the market. This RFID system vastly reduced market entry time from around one hour down to 30 seconds per vehicle.

Finally, the Bronze award went to Gangseo Wholesale Market in Seoul, South Korea for a market revitalisation programme using logistical excellence to introduce an efficient school meals programme into the market.

The WUWM Market Awards are held annually and are open to all the wholesale and retail markets within the WUWM global membership.
