SUPPLIER DIVERSITY CREATES VALUE, OPPORTUNITY, AND ECONOMIC IMPACT

Working to create a supplier base that reflects our values of equity and inclusion and the communities we serve.

We are committed to continuously developing an innovative and inclusive supply chain. We are proud to partner with a broad network of small organizations and businesses owned and operated by minorities, women, and other diverse populations. Supplier diversity is not only a key supply chain and diversity, equity, and inclusion initiative for Aramark—it is a business imperative that delivers success for our clients, consumers, and communities. 

We understand that each client and community is different, and that flexibility is key. That is why we take a customized approach to our supplier diversity efforts, adjusting to meet our partners’ unique needs by seeking a broad range of procurement opportunities and available suppliers in the geographic areas in which we serve.  

We have a centralized, enterprise-wide program focused on identifying potential diverse and small suppliers. We actively recruit diverse businesses, educate our employees on contracting goals, and provide a database of registered and certified diverse and small businesses. 

Wcurrently have partnerships with more than 6,000 small or diverse suppliers. To reinforce our supplier diversity commitments, we have set a goal to spend 25% of our purchases with small and diverse businesses throughout our supply chain by 2025.
