Schawk!, a leading global brand deployment provider that produces and protects brand assets to drive brand profitability, was recently honoured as U.K. ‘Supplier of The Year’ for ‘Best Sales & Marketing Partnership’ by Nestlé.

The Nestlé U.K. Supplier of The Year Award for Best Sales and Marketing Partnership was designed to recognise and acknowledge suppliers that exemplify outstanding performance and execution.
