5. How will Barilla ensure the Supplier Diversity and Inclusion Program is successful and fair?

Barilla is committed to including diverse businesses in the procurement processes across our supply chain. A business’ chance of being selected as a vendor depends on its offerings and if these offerings align with current opportunities and business needs. All businesses that register with Barilla’s Supplier Diversity and Inclusion Program Registry and Database will be thoroughly reviewed by our procurement team.

The Barilla Supplier Diversity and Inclusion Program Database captures supplier information, key contacts, core competencies, additional capabilities, and certification documents. The database is a resource for employees across the Barilla network and provides access to a wealth of qualified diverse suppliers and critical information to assist in the expansion of the program.
