Supplier Diversity - Cargill North America
Diverse Supplier Information and Registration Instructions for Suppliers Servicing Cargill in the U.S. and Canada
At Cargill, we recognize we are a stronger company when we tap the power of diversity. We have increased our commitment to purchase from diverse, small business enterprises that are certified as minority-owned and women-owned by providing an equal opportunity to bid to meet our procurement needs. We want our supplier base to reflect the communities in which our employees and customers live and work.
We seek diverse suppliers who can provide competitive pricing, quality products or services and technical support for our businesses. We are also looking for diverse suppliers who have the capacity to meet our needs, and who can increase efficiency through innovation, technology and low-cost sourcing.
While today we already work with more than 3,000 diverse suppliers, we continue to expand our efforts to collaborate with diverse supplier partners, especially in large, sustainable supply contracts and business development opportunities. For Cargill, supplier diversity is a strategic business imperative, and it is, simply, good business.
If you are a certified diverse supplier and wish to be considered for procurement opportunities with Cargill, please register with us.
Note: Registration does not guarantee contract and/or business development opportunities.
Tapping the power of diversity
The diversity of our supply chain is one of the many ways we offer distinctive value to our customers – by fostering economic growth in the communities they serve.
As a worldwide company that works with more than suppliers ranging from multinational corporations to single-family farms in developing nations, Cargill has a wide range of organizations to tap.
We are continuing to take steps to diversify our suppliers:
- Participating in local and national organizations dedicated to stimulating the growth of minority-owned and woman-owned businesses.
- Encouraging our employees to support small businesses and businesses owned by women, minorities or other disadvantaged groups when seeking new sources of supplies or services.
- Participating in mentoring activities with the leaders of disadvantaged businesses.
