With the theme “Accelerating Growth Through Partnership,” the recently concluded event also underscored Jollibee Group’s pivotal steps in enhancing customer experience and upholding the highest food safety and quality standards together with its suppliers. It also reiterated Jollibee Group’s commitment to sustainable business practices, as embodied in its ‘Joy for Tomorrow’ global sustainability agenda, as a company that partners with reputable suppliers who share its principles of serving food people trust, helping improve people’s lives, and treating the planet responsibly.

“Our suppliers have been one of our greatest resources, playing a crucial role in helping us meet our operational and sustainable business goals. As partners in our growth, we aim to keep them informed of our directions and initiatives, and to communicate our commitments to quality, consistency, and excellence,” Jollibee Group President and Chief Executive Officer Ernesto Tanmantiong said.
