Southeastern Grocers Partners With ReposiTrak to Expand Supplier Program; Dewayne Rabon and Randy Fields Share
JACKSONVILLE, FL & SALT LAKE CITY, UT - Southeastern Grocers (SEG) is getting by with a little help from its friends. In fact, the grocer is not only getting by, but thriving with the expansion of its diverse supplier program. SEG is tapping into the ReposiTrak MarketPlace to track down businesses with diverse and underrepresented ownership.
“Working with ReposiTrak to tailor internal practices allows us to find and contract with more diverse suppliers,” said SEG Chief Merchandising Officer Dewayne Rabon. “This new partnership with ReposiTrak helps offer customers throughout the Southeast with the most relevant products that best suit their tastes and preferences.”
ReposiTrak MarketPlace helps vendors build a profile and connect to retailers that are interested in selling their products, according to a press release. SEG will be able to search for products and categories, apply filters to find exactly what it needs, and ultimately contact new suppliers.
Further exemplifying the advantages of this solution, vendors can design MarketPlace features that highlight their specific characteristics and qualifications.
“Delivering high-quality products and services reliably to customers at three brands across five Southeastern states requires incredible coordination,” said ReposiTrak Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Randy Fields. “Southeastern Grocers raises the bar by simultaneously committing to a corporate culture of belonging, inclusion, and diversity. ReposiTrak is committed to making the partnership with SEG work so the retailer’s goal for a more diverse supplier base through an automated solution is met.”
I see diverse new partners in SEG’s future!
