Default Formula to pull the lowest supplier name

I need assistance creating a formula to extract the supplier name associated
with the lowest supplier bid. A sample of the data looks like this. I need
to be careful as some quotes will be zero and I do not want to pull this as
the minimum supplier.

Sup A Sup B Sup C Minimum Sup Bid Minimum Sup Name
$/lb. $/lb. $/lb. $/lb.
Item 1 1 2 3 1 ?
Item 2 0.5 0.2 0.4 0.2 ?
Item 3 2.4 1.9 0.8 0.8 ?

Default Formula to pull the lowest supplier name

To get the minimum and ignore zeros, can use this array (confirm formula
using Ctrl+Shift+Enter, not just Enter) formula:
=MIN(IF(B330,B33))

To get Supplier name:
=INDEX(B$1$1,,MATCH(E3,B33,0))
