Musgrave has named the winners of its fourth annual Heroes awards, with Ireland’s leading food retail, wholesale and food service company honouring its Overall Superhero and inspirational colleagues across six categories.

Launched in 2016 as part of Musgrave’s 140-year anniversary celebrations, the Heroes Awards provide Musgrave employees across the business an opportunity to nominate a colleague whom they feel embodies and brings to life Musgrave’s values and culture in their everyday work.

Hundreds of peer nominations were received from across the company. Candidates were selected by how they inspire their colleagues through their everyday actions and contribute positively towards making Musgrave a great place to work.
