Supplier Diversity Program

Navigating a large company can be daunting, especially when it comes to determining who handles buying decisions. This section of our website was created to make this process a little easier by providing some basic information you might find useful in presenting your product to Albertsons.

At Albertsons, we invite minority, LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender), service disabled veteran, and women-owned businesses to join our large list of suppliers for both goods and services. Most of the purchasing of goods and services is handled at our corporate headquarters.

Our program exists to assist minority, women and other diverse-owned businesses who seek to do business with our Company. Among other things, our Program connects diverse businesses with decision makers who can determine whether our Company will offer their products for sale or purchase their services.

What is a “diverse business”?

At least 51% owned and controlled/operated by a U.S. citizen and one of the following categories or ethnicities, and certified as described below:

  • African American
  • Asian American

  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender
  • Native American
  • Service-Disabled Veteran

Certifications Required
