Crown’s Commitment to Local Suppliers
“Crown Melbourne spends approximately $641 million annually across 2,881 Victorian businesses. Partnering with VCCI was a natural extension of our support for regional Victorian businesses. With over 94 per cent of our total spend going to local businesses, ensuring our pipeline of suppliers for our business is key. With the ongoing impact of COVID-19, we hope that initiatives like this from VCCI bring new opportunities to regional Victoria and help our state to rebuild.” - Ben Briggs, Group General Manager of Procurement and Supply, Crown Resorts.
“Victoria is home to some of the world’s best produce and this roadshow provides an opportunity for our home-grown businesses to showcase their wares and also learn more about how they can upscale their operations by tapping into a huge consumer and customer base like Crown.
“COVID-19 has created many challenges but has also revealed many opportunities and prompted us to focus on areas that we may have taken for granted, including the strength and reliability of our own food supply at a time of global uncertainty and international border closures.
“We have an opportunity now to harness and grow our domestic markets and nurture local supply chains which will benefit producers, purchases and consumers and, in turn, the broader Australian economy.”
- Paul Guerra, Chief Executive, Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
