How to Become a Diverse Supplier for Sysco

Register to become a Sysco MWBE Supplier

Our Supplier Diversity program is designed to ensure opportunities for Minority and Women-Owned Business Entrepreneurs (MWBE) to effectively compete and participate in Sysco’s procurement process.

We are also committed to making it simple and easy for you to do business with the Sysco system.  To help you do that, we have established a standardized registration process and supplier database for all participating entities throughout the Sysco system.

About Sysco’s Registration Process

Sysco is committed to supplier diversity and offers a diverse supplier database through a partnership with IVS Solutions (a minority business enterprise).

Registering your company does not guarantee any contracts, bid opportunities, RFPs nor does it qualify you as a Sysco supplier.  It simply lets us know you are interested in partnering with Sysco and provides us with up-to-date information about your company.

Supplier Expectations

•    We prefer suppliers be certified through one of our preferred third-party certification agencies, 51% U.S. owned and operated by a woman or minority group
•    Suppliers must have a clear understanding of their product and/or service and how it relates to our business goals and objectives
•    Suppliers must provide certification and liability insurance
•    Suppliers are required to update and maintain certification records periodically


NMSDC – If the prospective supplier is minority-owned, Sysco recommends that the business becomes certified by the National Minority Supplier Development Council or one of its regional affiliates.

WBENC – If the business is woman-owned, Sysco recommends certification with the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council or one of its regional affiliates.
