IFDA celebrates Hall of Fame inductees

Sept. 23, 2022
The International Foodservice Distributors Association honors 69 new professional truck driver members, and recognizes recent past inductees during the annual DSC show in Florida.

The International Foodservice Distributors Association recently inducted 69 professional drivers into its Hall of Fame during the annual Distribution Solutions Conference in Tampa, Florida.

The association also honored 2020 and 2021 Hall of Fame members who weren’t able to attend the ceremony.

“To provide some context for their achievement, there are currently over 131,000 foodservice distribution drivers in the United States and after this morning, only a very special 274, in total, will be in the IFDA Truck Driver Hall of Fame,” said Mark S. Allen, IFDA president and CEO.

“All of the industry’s hard-working drivers ensure food and supplies are delivered safely and efficiently to over one million commercial kitchens daily. Professional drivers are truly our industry’s unsung heroes.”

Since its inception, IFDA has worked tirelessly with its member companies to promote a culture of safety. In addition to the annual IFDA Truck Driving Championship, the Hall of Fame 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, a 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.
