Meet the IoSCM #SupplyChainStars

Velocetec Ltd

What a fantastic achievement from the team at Velocetec Ltd, working collaboratively with thyssenkrupp to supply components that are required to produce ventilators, which are desperately needed as the number of people in critical condition due to #covid19 continues to rise.

Mark Quinn

Mark Quinn, Founder of Aquapea, is giving up his own time and using his own resources and money to protect hundreds of shoppers in his local area. Visiting 7 major supermarkets early each morning to disinfect all of the trolleys, making them safe for customers. As NHS employees, and other key workers, have early morning access to many of these retail stores they are able to carry out their shopping confident that they are not using a contaminated trolley to get their much needed supplies.


We are delighted to award the supermarket chain Tesco with an IoSCM #SupplyChainStars award for their efforts to support customers, communities, and their own teams across the UK during the Coronavirus pandemic. Donating a £30m package of support is just one reason why they are such worthy recipients of the Award. Key workers across the country are working tirelessly to support the UK throughout this period of uncertainty and concern.

Livingston Football Club

Great to see how different kinds of supply chains are working tirelessly to help their local communities during the pandemic. Using their own resources to provide much needed support. Well done to the team at Livingston Football Club you definitely deserve your place on the #SupplyChainStars list.

Aldi UK

We are delighted to have another winner of the IoSCM #SupplyChainStars award to share with you today. The Aldi UK team, many of whom are behind the scenes, are working extremely hard to keep their stores well stocked.

We are delighted to be able to recognise the fantastic work Paragon Rapid Technologies Ltd. are doing to support those on the frontline working to combat #covid19. This is another example of how businesses across the country are collaborating to produce much needed safety equipment.

Crosta & Mollica

The Crosta & Mollica supply chain team have fought against all odds, overcoming numerous challenges to ensure our full range of fast-moving Italian-made products remain on shelf in the retailers. Retaining the fantastic relationships we have with our suppliers has been key, adapting to their ever changing production schedules whilst ensuring we have willing hauliers in place to bring product back by road, rail and sea. Quite a puzzle on a normal day, let alone having to incorporate the many obstacles caused by Covid-19. A proud achievement for the whole supply chain team at Crosta & Mollica.

The LEGO Group

The team at the LEGO Group have been working on a different kind of product in recent days as they are making 13,000 visors a day for health care workers to protect them from COVID-19. Their contribution shows how businesses are diversifying and collaborating to support national efforts of different countries to keep their key workers and citizens as safe, and protected, as possible against the virus.

Farming Community Network

We have another #SupplyChainStars award winner to share with you today. The team at the The Farming Community Network are offering outstanding levels of free support and advice to farmers, many of whom have been working around the clock to keep the food supply chain moving to provide vital produce for supermarkets and stores across the country. This is a worrying time for the farming industry, so being able to access this level of expertise and support is no doubt invaluable.
