New Indigenous Concept for Compass Group Retail Outlets
Compass Group Australia, the country’s largest food and support services provider, is excited to announce the launch of a new range of Indigenous products as the latest addition to their national retail offering and the next phase in their ongoing commitment to support Indigenous suppliers across Australia. Compass has a long and proud history of developing opportunities across the Indigenous supply base, working in conjunction with Supply Nation.
This new retail range, now available to all 550 Compass nationwide clients, includes innovative products across food, beverage and homeware categories sourced from Indigenous businesses. The Indigenous products and suppliers have been carefully selected to ensure they represent great opportunities for Compass clients and return commercial benefits and opportunities to Aboriginal communities.
“We are delighted to add these new products to our growing Indigenous range and continue to be passionate in developing unique opportunities for our both our clients and for truly local, truly Indigenous businesses,” said Andrew Brightmore, Executive Director Supply Chain for Compass Group.
“Compass was proud to be named the 2016 Supply Nation Corporate Member of the Year. This latest retail initiative further extends and demonstrates Compass’s longstanding commitment to ‘Closing the Gap’,” Andrew said.
This new range of products has been developed through long standing partnerships between Compass and Indigenous suppliers, and includes products developed with IndigiEarth, an Indigenous business based in NSW and founded in 1996. IndigiEarth founder, Sharon Windsor, was awarded Winner NSW Business Leader of the Year 2013 (first ever Aboriginal recipient), Winner of NSW Central West Business Leader Awards in 2013, Winner of the 2010 AIMSC Supplier Diversity Gnunkai Indigenous Tourism Award 2007 & 2009.
