The Kroger Co. today was named one of the nation’s 2013 “Best of the Best” by Hispanic Network Magazine for Top Supplier Diversity Programs for Hispanics.
“We are honored to be included in Hispanic Network Magazine’s ‘Best of the Best’ list,” said Reuben Shaffer, Kroger’s chief diversity officer. “Kroger’s commitment is to identify, create and develop sustainable business partnerships with minority-owned and women-owned businesses that support our growth and business objectives, and help us consistently meet the needs of our customers.”
Hispanic Network Magazine surveyed hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies for its 2013 evaluations. This is Kroger’s first time making the “Best of the Best” list.
