Our companies work hard to develop strong, sustainable supply chains by partnering with thousands of suppliers from growers to manufacturers.
Our suppliers deliver high-quality goods and services, manage business risk and find innovative solutions to tough issues. Open dialogue, shared expectations and honest feedback contribute to these strong relationships – some dating back decades.
We promote a strong culture of compliance and equip our employees to exercise sound business judgment when selecting suppliers. We work with suppliers who respect workers' rights; reduce costs and their environmental impact; and comply with our contracts and laws. Employees receive communications and training on topics such as antitrust, anti-bribery/anti-corruption and third-party vendor management.
As marketplace dynamics, our industry and our businesses change, we remain committed to enhancing our supply chains to provide a competitive advantage for our companies. Through continuing to foster diversity and inclusion within our supplier base, and ongoing collaboration with key stakeholders, we will be able to evolve our supply chains to be flexible, secure and sustainable for the long-term. Together, these actions allow us to meet societal expectations as a responsible company while developing strong supply chains for our future success.
