Social Purchasing Portal (SPP) of Winnipeg
LITE is excited to be the new host of the Social Purchasing Portal (SPP) of Winnipeg. Using a website portal, the SPP connects with purchasing partners who support opportunities for local employment and social responsibility.
Purchaser partners such as corporate business bodies, government departments, non-profits, and the general public, have the chance to add social value to their buying power by purchasing regularly required goods & services from local businesses.
Suppliers such as small locally owned businesses, social enterprises, and co-ops, have the chance to grow their business and profile, and in turn offer secure jobs to those who may face barriers to employment.
The Social Purchasing Portal includes:
*A fantastic simple to use website created by local web designers
*An expanded list of goods & services available locally
*The addition of a new element for the general public which will allow for easy access to a social purchasing directory of suppliers
*A strong emphasis on relationship-building between all partners
*And of course…much more!
