Supplier Diversity Program




As a national retailer and supply chain organization, UNFI serves customers across diverse geographies and demographics. To best serve these customers from coast to coast and border to border, we embrace diversity across our business, from our talented associates to the vendors we work with to deliver the products and services our customers are looking for.

Our Program

An important part of meeting these needs in so many cities and neighborhoods is our Supplier Diversity program. This program provides minority, women and diverse-owned and operated companies equal footing to effectively do business with us.

While we work with many different kinds of companies – from grocery products to office supplies – these companies all have one thing in common: they share our passion for serving customers.

Our Supplier Network 

UNFI desires a supply chain network that mirrors our customer base.  We have a significant existing network of diverse suppliers, and we continue to look for new businesses to help us serve our customers’ needs. When we evaluate vendors, we are looking for industry expertise and insight, along with the capability needed to deliver. This means we seek suppliers who are focused on customer service excellence and product quality, who understand their target markets, and who have a solid foundation for production capacity and financial stability.
