Manufacturing/Supply Purchasing is responsible for sourcing and selecting suppliers who produce products sold under any of the Publix brand names for our retail stores. We depend on our suppliers to provide the high-quality products and expedient services our customers demand. We expect relationships with our suppliers to be based on professionalism, high ethical standards, and consistent and open communication.
Publix Branded Product Categories
Publix Branded products are in three main categories: Fresh, Grocery and Non-Food products. When Publix chooses not to make a product in our manufacturing plants, we reach out to private label suppliers who can make finished products to Publix’s specifications.
