CHICAGO (PRWEB) OCTOBER 19, 2021

SupplyHive™, an innovative provider of Supplier Performance Management (SPM) technology, is gearing up to become a new McDonald’s Corp. trusted partner to help further diversify the restaurant corporation’s vendor supply chain and to open doors for businesses owned by women and/or Black, Hispanic, Asian, Indigenous, Veteran, LGBTQ+, and disabled persons.

As an example of its commitment to McDonald’s Mutual Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (MCDEI) pledge, SupplyHive’s™ signed the document and further solidified its commitment to the restaurant giant as well as with minorities in the supply chain.

Twenty U.S.-based suppliers are also signatories that are working together with the shared goals of supporting and empowering diverse-owned businesses, creating new pipelines of talent, driving greater innovation and competition, and building economic growth in diverse communities. The McDonald’s U.S. System spent around $14 billion throughout its U.S. supply chain in 2020, including 23% with diverse-owned suppliers. McDonald’s also said in July that it expects to increase purchases of goods and services from diverse-owned suppliers by nearly 10% by 2025.

“Over the past year, McDonald’s has solidified their approach to quantifying their impact to DEI,” says SupplyHive™ President and CEO Lou Sandoval. “We have become a trusted partner and continue to manage their vendors and now we will help them measure their entire network under the MCDEI commitment.”

Becoming a trusted partner shows that McDonald’s sees SupplyHive™ as a mover and shaker in the U.S. marketplace, says Sandoval.

“We have worked with McDonald’s on the vendor management side, and now they are taking us on as a partner to help them measure some of the promises they made regarding diversity, equity and inclusion,” says Sandoval. “While we continue as a vendor, we are now a partner and will be providing them with guidance and advice on how it can grow and make its supply chains more equitable to all groups.”
