Strategic Sourcing at Zoetis

Zoetis key procurement organizations are Global Strategic Sourcing and Operations, Zoetis Global Supply and Vet Med R&D.

Zoetis colleagues follow a documented strategic sourcing process, which helps ensure a solid fit between a project's requirements and a supplier's capabilities. As a result of thorough, up-front analysis, this process also significantly improves the odds of long-term success for all members of a project team. We encourage potential suppliers to familiarize themselves with our process so that when the opportunity arises, they will understand where and how they might add value.

The Zoetis Strategic Sourcing Process offers a common foundation and framework that provides us with a consistent approach to the sourcing of goods and services. Additionally, the process directly supports our commitment to eliminate redundancies and adopt best practices to optimize costs and streamline efficiencies.
