Morton Salt, a K + S Group company, was awarded the Walmart Supplier Collaboration Award  of the Year for their performance supplying packaged ice melters to Walmart's Hardlines group at the 2010 National Replenishment Summit held August 11, 2010 in Bentonville, AR.  Morton was one of four Walmart vendors to receive the award.

"It is an honor to be selected for the award out of so many prestigious companies," said Morton Salt CEO Mark Roberts. "It reflects well on our strong ice melt brand product portfolio as well as our capability to meet dynamic seasonal demand surges in a challenging product category.  I am very proud of the entire organization for stepping up to earn this award."

Morton's Ice Melt team was selected for their outstanding collaborative strategy and dedication throughout the ’09-’10 winter season which helped reduce out-of-stocks by 93 percent.

Kendall Trainor, Walmart VP Replenishment, presented the award expressing great appreciation to the Morton team who "made themselves available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week", and increased Hardlines’ performance.
