Raw materials for our products, packaging, machinery for the production and finishing of products, other equipment and technical devices and other services that are necessary to support our business processes, we procure from our over 4,000 suppliers of various profiles, sizes, and origins, among which are represented large global corporations and small local suppliers.
These materials, equipment and services are supplied through diverse and often complex supply chains, given their characteristics, production process and geographical origin.
Regardless of the supplier category, we aim to achieve high-quality relationships with our suppliers to generate added value for both our company and our suppliers through such relationships. With most of our suppliers, we cultivate strong and long-term relationships, offering them numerous opportunities and possibilities for cooperation.
Nevertheless, we are continuously open to expanding the existing supplier base to enable the continuous flow of new ideas, materials and products from the purchasing markets and their application in our products and processes through the establishment of cooperation with new suppliers.
The added value from the establishment of such cooperative relationships with suppliers is also reflected in the creation of customer satisfaction with greater innovation, better functionality, and superior quality of our products.
