Why is it important that we honor Hispanic and Latinx Heritage?
Hispanic and Latin Americans have made so many impactful contributions to our society. From Luis Walter Alvarez designing a landing and radar system in WWII to Ellen Ochoa becoming the first Hispanic woman in space all while being an inventor of optical technology. As Hispanic and Latin heritage relates to our industry, Hispanic and Latin culture has shared some of the amazing food and beverages we enjoy today. Enchiladas, tamales, horchata, agua frescas, tortas and many other dishes and drinks are on our menus today thanks to our Hispanic and Latin culture.

Foodbuy Diverse Supplier Accelerator Feature: BLK & Bold Specialty Beverages

In an effort to accelerate the growth and utilization of Women and Minority-Owned Enterprises (W/MBEs), Foodbuy recently launched the Diverse Supplier Accelerator Program. This comprehensive 12-month program provides selected suppliers one-on-one coaching and training through formal mentor-mentee relationships, and the opportunity to collaborate on plans that mutually grow our business.

We will periodically feature program participants, and this month we are pleased to interview Pernell Cezar Jr, the co-founder and CEO of BLK & Bold Specialty Beverages, to learn more about the company and their journey so far.

Empowering Procurement

When shopping for home products, whether groceries, batteries, grass seed, or any other product category, buying in bulk will almost certainly save you money. For example, buying a 24-pack of paper towels could cost as much as 30% less per roll than buying them individually.

Imagine that you wanted to maximize this opportunity by buying 1,000 rolls of paper towels. The per unit price would be even lower. Obviously you would have trouble using 1,000 rolls of paper towels, but what if you were to purchase these with a group of friends or neighbors? You may only use 18 rolls in the next 12 months, but collectively your group could use 1,000. By combining your purchasing with the rest of your group all group members realize the savings, though your spending is a only a small part. Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs) operate under this principle; the more a collection of members can purchase together, the lower the individual cost.

A group purchasing organization (GPO) is an entity that is formed to leverage the purchasing power of many businesses to obtain better pricing for it’s member businesses. Since many businesses purchase the same types of products, by collectively purchasing these products they can reduce the per unit price. GPOs are also known as co-ops, collectives, consortia, leveraged buying or procurement groups.

GPOs exist in many verticals: healthcare, foodservice, utilities, and industrial manufacturing are a few of these. There are two main types of GPOs – vertical and horizontal. Vertical GPOs serve customers mainly in specific industries, while horizontal GPOs have members in many different industries. Vertical GPOs have great purchasing power in industry-specific categories; horizontal GPOs leverage buying power in categories that are more commonly purchased by all companies regardless of vertical. For example, a vertical GPO in the healthcare industry would have great purchasing power for MRI machines, where a horizontal GPO would have great purchasing power for printer paper.

We are delighted to announce our newest business partner: Foodbuy Foodbuy is a leading food procurement organisation based in the UK. Their Chief Operating officer Karl Atkins said, “We’re really excited to join the Institute of Hospitality family. For most businesses working in hospitality, a large proportion of their carbon impact sits within the supply chain, so we are in a really unique position to offer educational guidance, influence change and drive a more sustainable future for our industry and help create a more sustainable food system.” We look forward to working with Foodbuy towards providing a deeper knowledge and appreciation of #FoodSustainability among #hospitality business owners, operators, suppliers and professionals and on the environmental impact of a more sustainable food system. For more details on our partnership: https://www.instituteofhospitality.org/businesspartner/foodbuy/
Big thanks to the team at Foodbuy for visiting our offices and taking a tour of the warehouse. One of the key topics of discussion was continuous improvement and innovation. Particularly, how we can each learn from one another, and the experiences we each have within our respective supply chains. It's great to partner with an organisation who is always looking to learn and innovate, which strongly aligns to our values as a small company always looking to learn and improve. Thanks Genevi and team, we look forward to strengthening our partnership over the longterm.
