In a very proud moment for the Ali Bin Ali Group, P.P. Viswanathan, Quality Control manager at the ABA Beverages Division, has been honoured with the prestigious PepsiCo Chairman’s Circle of Champions Award for 2016.
The awards ceremony was held at the Westchester Marriott, New York, on September 29. It was arranged by the PepsiCo headquarters and Viswanathan along with his guest was present at the event.
The PepsiCo Chairman’s Circle of Champions Award selects 200 employees globally, out of 180,000-plus employees, based on consistent performance criteria for the past several years.
The recognition for ABA Beverages Division’s Viswanathan is a clear step from PepsiCo to motivate employees to come up to the global standards of performance.
Earlier, informing Viswanathan about the honour, PepsiCo Chairman and CEO Indra K Nooyi had said in a letter that the award is their way of recognising the performance he delivers each and every day. “You embody the kinds of qualities – excellence, determination and perseverance – that have made, and will always make, our company so successful,” she wrote.
Adding another feather to the Ali Bin Ali Group’s cap, the ABA Beverages division has been awarded the prestigious Caleb Bradham Quality Excellence Award & Food Safety Award for the year 2015.
