At IRI, we believe that smaller diverse-owned businesses deserve equal opportunity to leverage their talents for growth.
Diverse supplier ecosystems have proven to be effective in combating social injustice and generating economic opportunities for disadvantaged communities. With our deep data, analytics and technology expertise, coupled with strong retailer relationships, IRI is uniquely positioned to support and accelerate supplier diversity in the consumer goods industry.
The IRI Diversity Advantage Program (DAP) was created by employee volunteers to support our vision of a fair and equitable consumer goods industry. It's a way to do our part to help level the playing field for those smaller businesses from under-represented groups.
The DAP supports ethnically diverse FMCG companies that are looking to take the next step to growth.
We work closely with ADDPSALT, a purpose-led retail brand accelerator created to support diversity within FMCG, to identify ‘DAP’ers as well as various UK retailer recommendations, many of whom have their own diverse supplier programs.
