Campbell strives to develop a supply base that reflects the demographic diversity of our employees and our consumers. Our goal is to ensure that diverse suppliers have equal access to procurement opportunities, strengthening our supplier base, our business, and our communities.
Our purpose—Real food that matters for life’s moments—is our decision-making filter. It emphasizes our responsibility to fulfill our Real Food Philosophy, which affirms that real food is something we are proud to serve; has roots in our communities; is made with desirable ingredients; and crafted using ethical and sustainable sourcing practices.
Of course, we recognize that those communities are increasingly diverse and multicultural. In fact, we celebrate that diversity, as seen in our core value to ‘Seek the Power of Different’, which reminds us that it’s good to be unique and work together. We firmly believe that diverse suppliers positively impact our business and the quality of life in the communities where we live and work.
That’s why we strive for diversity in our supplier base. We are committed to promoting the use of diverse businesses throughout our organization. Supplier diversity and business results are inseparable; achieving a talented pool of diverse suppliers adds value to our business and helps ensure creative and innovative approaches across our organization.
