Our industry has a global footprint unlike any other; BI, alone, sources raw materials from over 40 countries. Due to this extensive supply chain, sourcing is the most complex function in this industry. With 40 years of experience, BI has built a skilled procurement team, distinguished vendor qualification program, and excellent, long-term relationships with our vendor base. Our relationship with the growers combined with our knowledge of crop cycles gives us the strength to oversee any cycle – from planting to harvest. Quality ingredients start at the source and BI’s high standards help to develop a more sophisticated supply chain before the raw materials even reach our docks.
