Supplier Diversity Policy

Effective Date: March 31, 2021

Flashfood’s Commitment to Equity of Opportunity

Flashfood works to create mutually beneficial business relationships with diverse suppliers that strengthen the communities we serve. We are committed to developing mutually beneficial relationships with small, minority-owned, women-owned, disadvantaged/disabled, veteran owned and LGBTQA business enterprises. Our aim is to provide opportunities to diverse suppliers that satisfy our service and contractual standards. Secondarily, it supports our retail partners in achieving their own corporate diversity goals. Flashfood’s management is encouraged to identify and include diverse suppliers and service providers in the sourcing process. Diverse suppliers that demonstrate the ability to add value, provide high-quality services that are competitively priced, reliable, and aligned with our mission may be included in our sourcing and procurement process.

Responsibilities: The Finance & Accounting team will identify and encourage departments to explore opportunities to identify small, minority-owned, women-owned, disadvantaged/disabled, veteran owned and LGBTQA business enterprises to compete for business and from whom to obtain goods and services whenever possible. 

Procedures: The Supplier Diversity Policy will be communicated internally and externally, and where possible Flashfood will participate with global, national, regional and local initiatives in order to maintain awareness of resources and encourage diversity suppliers to participate in our requests for proposals.

Managers will actively seek out certified diverse suppliers that can provide competitive, high quality goods and services whose business model is aligned with our strategy.  Before awarding business, each Manager must demonstrate the results of their effort to get final sign-off by the Finance & Accounting team.
