Kroger honors 81 talented partners from Minority & Women Owned Businesses

07
Oct '05
The Kroger Co honored 81 outstanding minority-owned and women-owned vendors for 2004. The Minority-Owned and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (M/WBEs) were nominated by corporate and division buyers and merchandisers. The honorees were selected for the second annual award based on several criteria, including quality of product or service, innovation and presentation of new ideas, performance, and sales volume.

The firms fall into two categories: those that provide retail products or services for sale in Kroger's stores, and not-for-resale products and service. In 2004, Kroger spent approximately $780 million with M/WBEs.
