Jacksonville, Florida-based Southeastern Grocers Inc. is using ReposiTrak MarketPlace to increase its purchasing from businesses with diverse and underrepresented ownership.
With ReposiTrak MarketPlace, Southeastern Grocers is implementing an automated solution that makes it easier for diverse and underrepresented suppliers to introduce their product offerings and special certifications, with no associated costs.
“Working with ReposiTrak to tailor internal practices allows us to find and contract with more diverse suppliers,” said Dewayne Rabon, chief merchandising officer, Southeastern Grocers. “This new partnership with ReposiTrak helps offer customers throughout the Southeast with the most relevant products that best suit their tastes and preferences.”
ReposiTrak MarketPlace helps vendors build a profile and connect to retailers that are interested in selling their products. Retailers are able to search for products and categories by applying filters to find exactly what they need and get in contact with new suppliers. Vendors can design MarketPlace features that highlight their specific characteristics and qualifications.
“Delivering high-quality products and services reliably to customers at three brands across five southeastern states requires incredible coordination,” said Randy Fields, ReposiTrak chairman and CEO. “Southeastern Grocers raises the bar by simultaneously committing to a corporate culture of belonging, inclusion and diversity. ReposiTrak is committed to making the partnership with Southeastern Grocers work so the retailer’s goal for a more diverse supplier base through an automated solution is met.”
Southeastern Grocers Inc. is the parent company of the Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery stores. The company serves customers throughout the five southeastern states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi.
