At Peterson Farms our procurement strategies are to select, develop and maintain a preferred supply base to:
• provide all the products and services required for the business at the right time and place, in the right quantity and quality, and at the lowest total cost,
• ensure social and environmental responsibility within our supply base,
• bring leading-edge practices to Procurement, and
• cultivate an environment that attracts and retains talented, high-performing people.
Diversity is a core principle Peterson Farms values in our Supplier base. We believe in strengthening the minority supplier community economically. Should your business be considered a Minority Business Enterprise (MBW), Woman Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) or a Veteran Owned Business (VOB, VVO or VBE), notify Peterson Farms so that we may update our records accordingly. A minority business is defined as a company that is at least 51% owned by a minority person (s).
Our goal is to develop and maintain a robust supply base of qualified suppliers aimed at providing lowest total costs and exceeding our customer expectations.
Our qualification process is designed to gradually share information about each other, so we can each make clear decisions whether or not to continue the process. Our objective is to qualify suppliers with the best capability match to our business needs.
Please contact the Peterson Farms, Inc. Procurement Department if you are interested in becoming a supplier.
