Company Story

Your one-stop e-procurement shopping center developed by retail professionals for retail professionals

The SafeSourcing mission is to provide information and services to our customers through e-procurement tools that proactively support consumer safety and environmental standards in the global supply chain. We will drive increased efficiency and improve profitability for our customers, and provide superior value for all stakeholders.

About Us: 
Just in time, an innovative alternative has arrived. SafeSourcing is loaded with efficient and comprehensive tools and programs that turn the procurement process into a highly productive endeavor. SafeSourcing® is, literally, a one-stop shopping center.

At SafeSourcing, we focus on safety and security. All our vendors are part of a high quality supplier database with many associated tables that support security and safety in the supply chain. SafeSourcing’s suppliers are also checked for their support of socially responsible initiatives including their eco-friendly practices.

To that end, our SafeSourceIt™ Supplier Database of over 427,000 global suppliers contains over twenty-five unique certification standards that are supported by our best practice initiatives such as GFSI, ISO 22000, Green Seal, ECO-LOGO, Fair Trade, SQF and Certified Humane Raised & Hand-Fed.

The SafeSourcing objective is to help buyers save considerably on costs. History shows that in selected categories, buyers have saved as much as 30-40%. Auction events can literally be set up in minutes, creating a significant efficiency improvement over traditional offerings. Studies have shown that a 5% saving in procurement costs translates into an effective increase in sales growth of 30%.

“As our technology advances, new companies are given the tools to do business in a better, smarter, more streamlined and cost effective way. SafeSourcing is one of those companies and delivering these advances to the procurement community is why we are here.” Ron Southard, CEO, SafeSourcing

SafeSourcing is committed to proactively supporting safety and environmental standards in the global supply chain. We donate a portion of our net profits to retail education, green and safety initiatives.
