Sysco's path is defined by our specific Mission and Vision statements, which guide our associates every day.
To market and deliver great products to our customers with exceptional service.
To be our customers' most valued and trusted business partner.
Five Point Strategy
To achieve our Vision, our focus on five strategic elements: Partnership, Productivity, Products, Expansion and People. We believe these elements provide the ingredients for success not only for Sysco, but also for our customers, suppliers, employees and the communities we serve.
Partnership - We believe that, by partnering with our customers and suppliers, we can profoundly enrich the experience of doing business with Sysco. These essential partnerships lay the foundation for future growth aligned around our differentiated capabilities.
Productivity - Sysco has a longstanding commitment, and record of success, in continuously improving productivity – it’s foundational to our culture. We are using this expertise to build additional efficiencies into our operations, as well as developing a highly efficient end-to-end supply chain.
Products - Sysco aspires to be the industry leader in product innovation and business solutions. We’re expanding our offerings through the implementation of category management, and developing a robust suite of services and solutions through our Sysco Ventures platform.
Expansion - A considerable portion of Sysco’s historic growth has come from acquiring good companies with extraordinary people that complement or expand the footprint of our core business. In fiscal 2015, we continued that tradition closing transactions in the United States, Costa Rica and Mexico. We will continue to look for attractive growth opportunities both domestic and internationally through acquisition, joint ventures and strategic partnerships.
People - Our people are at the heart of Sysco’s service- and safety-driven culture – they’re integral to our success. To ensure a deep pool of talent for the future, we’re implementing an enterprise-wide talent management process to drive continuous improvement throughout the enterprise.
