Join the Calumet Meats Supplier Diversity Program
How do I apply?
The first step in the application process is to complete the Potential Vendor Profile. Once we receive your completed profile, and copy of your certification document, we will forward you an acknowledgement of receipt. If a procurement opportunity is available, you will be asked to submit additional information and/or schedule an appointment with the appropriate individual. If the need for your product or service is currently being satisfied, your company will be entered into our MBE/WBE/DBE Vendor Database.
This database is accessed regularly by corporate and property buyers throughout our company. It is the primary resource for identifying minority, women and disadvantaged owned businesses. At Calumet Diversified Meats, our number one priority is providing our customers with the highest quality products and services available. Consequently, we only work with suppliers that share our commitment to excellence. You may therefore be asked to meet with several key individuals, or we may arrange to have a representative visit your facility.
Once I submit a sample for evaluation, how long will it be until I receive a response?
All samples are forwarded to the appropriate department, where purchasing agents will complete their evaluation as promptly as possible. If you haven't heard back from us within 30 days of submission, contact the Supplier Diversity Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How often are contracts renewed?
The duration of procurement contracts at Calumet Diversified Meats varies according to the product or service. Whenever a contract comes up for renewal, we will contact vendors registered in our MBE/WBE/DBE Vendor Database to inform them of the opportunity to bid.
Does my business need to be certified?
To ensure that only bona fide minority, women and disadvantaged-owned businesses are participating in the Calumet Diversified Meats Supplier Diversity Program, we require certification from all vendors. Your business can be certified by any recognized U.S. certifying agency.
A Small Business Size Standard Company validated by the U.S. Federal Government.
