Sysco Launches New Foodie Solutions™ Platform

Monday, September 14th, 2020

Foodies may seem to just eat a lot of food, but we require quality at the top of our list. Foodservice operators understand the need, and one foodservice giant is set to make this easier for suppliers. Sysco Corporation has implemented a new opportunity for suppliers to maintain that level of quality by launching Foodie Solutions, an innovative, new platform created to support foodservice operators in today’s rapidly changing business climate.

Greg Keller, Senior Vice President of Sales and Chief Customer Officer, Sysco“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve stood by foodservice operators across the country as they wrestled with unprecedented challenges to their businesses. With our unique perspective as a nationwide supplier to the industry, we’ve identified and already begun to implement proven strategies restaurateurs can use to meet their rapidly changing needs,” said Greg Keller, Senior Vice President of Sales and Chief Customer Officer. “Today, we are proud to launch Foodie Solutions, which provides resources designed to assist customers ‘where they are’—no matter which stage of reopening they are in. Our customers can count on us to provide solutions to propel innovation and longevity through this current crisis and into the future.”

With its broad-based perspective from supporting restaurants and other foodservice operators across the country, Sysco identified the most essential tools to help customers respond quickly to shifting business requirements and trends resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a press release, Foodie Solutions features carefully curated toolkits focused on safely implementing vital strategies for meeting the increased demand for delivery and alternative dining options.
