What is Supplier Branding and why should you care

At Supplier Day, we strongly believe that the concept of Customer of Choice is no longer fit for purpose. Organisations and their Procurement Functions need to shift their focus beyond their strategic suppliers and onto the value any supplier can provide, especially when they feel passionate and excited about a particular initiative. And the best way to do this is by creating their very own Supplier Branding.

For companies who are directly impacted by such crises, maintaining effective communication with their supply base - addressing its impact on the organisations and their long-term goals - is a crucial step in forging strong supplier relationships and reinforcing a Customer of Choice status.
