About the Pat Curran Award for Excellence in Customer Service

Pat Curran was a real hero of the Irish natural health world and many were truly saddened at his passing in 2014. Pat, along with his wife Phil set up PPC Ltd, which distributes the well-known Irish brand Eskimo-3 omega-3 oils, over 20 years ago and was well liked by customers and colleagues alike. Pat was incredibly passionate about customer service and treating people with respect. He had that personal touch and always remembered to enquire about a birthday, a son/daughter away at college or a sick relative. He was a man of integrity, kindness and generosity who always put the needs of others before his own.

In order to celebrate Pat's life and acknowledge the rich legacy he has left behind, PPC and Pat's family - wife Phil, daughters Olive and Hazel and son-in-law Michael - have launched the Pat Curran Award for Excellence in Customer Service.

The objective of this worthwhile award is to celebrate excellence in independent health food shops throughout Ireland.
