How time flies. 2019 marks the 120th Anniversary of Sonoco, and the 15th Anniversary of our Annual Supplier Business Conference. We’ve come a long way and we owe much of our success to the many suppliers like you, who have worked side-by-side with us over the years and have helped our business grow. We started this forum to help connect and communicate with our key supplier partners to give you an inside look and better understanding of our vision, business needs, goals, and where we see opportunities for growth.
This year is special as we’ll be celebrating Sonoco’s rich history and reviewing what we see as the key components in Building for the Next 120 Years. We’ll also be recognizing exceptional supplier performance, as well as focusing on our efforts to increase diversity and sustainability successes across our supply base.
The Supplier Business Conference provides an unparalleled opportunity for our suppliers to network with one another and with Sonoco. Proceeds from the Supplier Business Conference go to fund student scholarships and to support outstanding diversity organizations, which is in keeping with our corporate purpose, Better Packaging, Better Life.
We hope you’ll plan to join us for this great event!
