pladis, the global snacking company behind some of the UK’s most loved and iconic brands, has announced its membership of MSDUK to help support its commitment for greater inclusion and diversity across its supply chain.
Over the last 16 years, MSDUK has built up a strong network of over 2,000 ethnic minority businesses. Access to this network, as well as MSDUK’s experience and insight, will help to provide greater knowledge and understanding of pladis’ suppliers to ensure a greater representation of ethnic minority businesses.
MSDUK will also work with pladis’ procurement teams to help ensure an increased understanding of the importance and benefits of a diverse supply chain and provide guidance with respect to supplier engagement.
Salman Amin, CEO at pladis said: “Promoting inclusion and diversity, and guarding against any form of discrimination are of key importance to us at pladis. I believe that diversity transcends the individual and makes people, businesses and countries stronger and better. Diversity of perspectives and opinions, and diversity of experiences, leads to better informed thinking and ideas.”
