Capital purchasing / raw and pack materials


WEConnect International is a corporate-led non-profit and our goal is to connect more majority women owned businesses into the corporate supply chain.

One of the WEConnect International corporate members, a multinational consumer goods corporation, is ramping up their supplier diversity efforts in Europe and they are keen to identify more women-owned businesses they could potentially work with as future suppliers.

If any of the categories listed below might be a fit for your business, please get in touch with Emma Duncan, Outreach and Event Manager for Europe on by Tuesday 2nd June.
