Welcome to Coles

 

The Coles Supplier Portal helps support effective working relationships between Coles and our suppliers, providing better coordination and communication to help drive efficiencies along the supply chain.

The portal also helps our suppliers by providing information to assess their performance on a regular basis and identify opportunities of improvement along the value chain.

We work closely with suppliers to take effective measures towards continuous improvement and have discussions with suppliers about opportunities and areas for improvement.

Dear Valued Supplier Partner,


The South Australia Government has now provided guidance and published directions on those businesses that are allowed to operate under the 6-day ‘circuit-breaker’ lockdown. As advised, Coles Supermarkets, Coles liquor stores and Coles Express are essential services and will continue to operate.


Importantly the directions also classify those who conduct essential work involved in the production and distribution of food and groceries for sale by Coles as essential workers who may also continue to work throughout the lockdown.


Similarly, where your team conduct work that is essential for the continued operation of Coles stores, they are also classified as essential workers and so may continue to visit Coles stores. We appreciate your ongoing assistance in limiting non-essential visits and in following our COVID-19 safety protocols.


If you require evidence to support your status as a supplier of goods or service to Coles, or to demonstrate that your team conducts work that is essential for Coles operations, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your Coles contact.


Coles will continue to publish all information related to COVID-19, including stores with impacted team members here and if you have any concerns or questions please reach out.


Thank you again for the support you and your teams have shown us during this difficult time.

Dear Valued Supplier Partner,


With the announcement from the South Australian Government on a 6-day "circuit breaker" period of restrictions, we wanted to confirm that Coles Supermarkets are an essential service and will continue to operate.


The South Australian Government is providing guidance as to which other businesses are allowed to continue to operate. We anticipate that as a supplier of Coles, your South Australian operations will be able to continue to operate, but you will need to carefully assess the requirements that apply to your industry. We will provide further guidance as information becomes available.


We anticipate that your team members who need to visit our stores as part of their essential duties will be able to continue to do so. However, we request that you immediately cancel any non-essential visits. If your team visits, it is essential that they sign in to enable our contact tracing efforts and follow all health and safety protocols called out in stores, including never visiting a store while unwell. We also strongly recommend you wear a mask when visiting our Supermarkets and Distribution Centres in South Australia.


Coles publishes all information related to COVID-19, including stores with impacted team members here. Our Supermarkets and Distribution Centres have strict protocols in place to ensure they are safe for customers, team members and suppliers, and we want to reassure you that safety and wellbeing is our number one priority. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Coles contact to discuss further.


We want to again say thank you for the support you have shown our team during this difficult time. The situation is complex and evolving almost daily. We will provide you with regular updates, but if you have any concerns or questions please reach out. We are proud of the way Coles and our supplier partners are working together to help our community get through this challenging period.
