The C2FO Team

C2FO is proud to partner with leading food and drug retailer Albertsons Cos. in launching an expanded early payment program aimed at boosting supplier diversity as Albertsons reaffirms its commitment to racial equity.

The goal of the new program is to help diverse-owned businesses alleviate immediate capital challenges by making access to working capital more equitable and providing funding at significantly lower rates.  

“Albertsons Companies is dedicated to helping our communities lay the foundation for racial equity,” said Jonathan Mayes, Albertsons SVP, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer. “We’re taking these steps as part of our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in our company, and the businesses we choose to partner with so that we reflect the wonderfully diverse communities we serve.”
