  • Celebrating outstanding performance that improves our processes, products and services

Here at AB Agri, we like to champion those colleagues who demonstrate determination to help us continually improve our processes, and the products and services we offer customers around the world. That’s why we recognise outstanding performance through our annual ‘Roadrunner' and ‘Centre of Excellence awards’.

Roadrunner celebrates and recognises the exceptional performance of individuals throughout our global business and our Centres of Excellence are awarded for team performance.

The winners are people who have seen opportunities, looked for ways to implement them and delivered significant and long-term business results. We believe our winners live our values - pioneering, excellence and growth - and are colleagues to celebrate and be proud of.

This year’s winners were announced during AgriFest, our annual event for our colleagues around the world.
