Denise Leathers, editorial director of Frozen & Refrigerated Buyer, has been honored with a national award by the American Society of Business Publication Editors for her company profile on Amazon Fresh, our cover story in last October’s issue. The story, “A Fresh Approach,” won a silver award in the organization’s Awards of Excellence Competition. Hers was among 830 entries in 65 categories of entries.
