Diversity plays an important role in every aspect of our business, all the way to our suppliers.
CEO Message on Supplier Diversity
At Sysco, we recognize that a diverse and inclusive supply chain is critical to our success. Not only does it help us better understand and serve our diverse customer base, but it also helps us drive innovation, increase competitiveness, and create more equitable economic opportunities for all.
We work with diverse suppliers from various backgrounds and industries, including women-owned, minority-owned, LGBTQ-owned, veteran-owned, and businesses owned by individuals with a disability. By partnering with these businesses, we can create stronger relationships, foster new ideas and solutions, and drive positive social and economic impact.
Our procurement policies, which encourage using diverse suppliers, reflect our commitment to supplier diversity. We established partnerships with diverse business organizations to help them thrive and grow by offering training, resources, and support.
However, we know there is more work ahead of us. We will continue to improve our supplier diversity efforts, track and measure our progress, and hold ourselves accountable for making a meaningful impact.
Thank you for your support as we build a more diverse and inclusive supply chain. We look forward to continuing this important work together.
