The International Foodservice Distributors Association (IFDA) recently inducted 63 professional drivers into its Truck Driver Hall of Fame during the IFDA Distribution Solutions Conference at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando FL.
The induction ceremony followed a celebration banquet held a day earlier.
“We’re proud to honor the exceptional careers and contributions of these hard-working professionals with this program,” said Mark S Allen, president and CEO of IFDA. “We are grateful to have skilled drivers of this caliber in our industry, ensuring a safe and efficient food supply for professional kitchens across the country.”
Since its inception, IFDA has worked with its member companies to promote a culture of safety. In addition to the annual IFDA Truck Driving Championship, this program casts a spotlight on the industry’s top drivers for their outstanding records of service and safety.
To be eligible for the IFDA Hall of Fame, the driver must have at least 25 years with no chargeable accidents and may not have any moving violations within the previous five years prior to nomination.
