An employee of the East Caribbean Group of Companies (ECGC) has received a Gold award from the National Association of British and Irish Flour Milling (NABIM), the first person in the Caribbean or Latin America to do so.
Lanel Black, Quality Assurance Manager, completed her thesis and has been awarded the prestigious NABIM Gold Award, two years after being awarded the Silver Medal for NABIM Advanced Certificate.
She presented on the topic “Utilizing Six Sigma’s DMAIC model to improve flour mill balance, mill performance, efficiency, finished product quality, extraction, and profitability.” It was judged “well worthy of the Gold Medal” by the Assessment Panel of NABIM, and appreciation was extended to Black for the quality of work she presented.
“From the commencement of her employment at ECGC, Lanel has diligently focused on attaining her goals. This award is one of her many achievements of which we are proud.
“This honour is considered the highest possible achievement in NABIM’s assessment programme. However, Black remains steadfast in her pursuit of further accolades towards self-development.
“The ECGC family congratulates Black on this illustrious achievement and wishes her continued success in her endeavours,” a release from ECGC said.
