Making a global impact on supplier diversity

Kellogg works to conduct business with diverse suppliers who represent our consumers and the communities where we live and work, while also ensuring our customers, employees and supplier partners benefit from our partnerships. To do so, we rely on over 20,000 incredible ingredient, packaging, indirect services and co-manufacturing suppliers from around the world.

In 2021, we allocated $410,227,911 to Tier 1 diverse suppliers and $52,022,219 to Tier 2.*

Kellogg North America's supplier diversity program has long been an essential component of the Company's overall ED&I strategy. The program focuses on diversity throughout the supplier lifecycle. Now, the goal is to bring these benefits to other regions where Kellogg operates. For example, similar efforts to identify and partner with more women-owned suppliers are underway in the Latin American region, with future plans to support the Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) supply chain. Focus on women-owned businesses supports our commitment to the United Nations Women's Empowerment Principles, which guide businesses on how to best support gender equity in workplaces, marketplaces and communities worldwide.

*Tier 1 diverse suppliers have a direct relationship with Kellogg Company. Tier 2 supplier spend is counted when Kellogg-aligned suppliers contract with diverse suppliers and report that spend back to us.
