Aramark Increases Support of Minority-Owned BusinessesJuly 28, 2022
Aramark has announced the commencement of its second mentoring cohort with the Eastern Minority Supplier Development Council (EMSDC) and Southern California Minority Supplier Development Council (SCMSDC).
The agreement calls for the two councils to match Aramark executives with nine minority/women business enterprises (M/WBEs) from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and California for business skills training, coaching sessions, and more.
“Aramark’s commitment to working with small businesses and businesses owned and operated by minorities, women, and other diverse populations is key to forming strategic relationships that provide more culturally authentic products, increase value for our clients, and foster local economic impact,” said Natily Santos, Aramark vice president of responsible sourcing. “Supporting M/WBE mentoring opportunities is an essential supply chain initiative that contributes greatly to our sustainability, community relations, and diversity and inclusion goals.”
Aramark provides food services, facilities management, and uniform and career apparel to health care institutions, universities and school districts, stadiums and arenas, and businesses around the world. For more information, visit www.aramark.com.
