WHAT WE DO
MSDUK brings together innovative and high growth EMBs (ethnic minority owned businesses) with global corporations committed towards creating an inclusive & diverse supply chain.
There are over 300,000 Ethnic Minority-owned businesses (EMBs) in the UK, representing over 7% of all SMEs. This entrepreneurial community bring with them their proven track record of innovation, hard-work, customer loyalty, flexibility and cultural insight that helps supply chains become more competitive, nimble and profitable. Under-representation of EMBs in both public and private sector not only hinders inclusive growth but deprives large organisations with an alternate supply chain option that brings new ideas to market and benefit the bottom-line.
MSDUK is proud to champion the best of British ethnic minority businesses and work with progressive global corporations that understand the value of supply chain inclusion and diversity. Since 2006, we have worked with over 125 global brands and more than 1500 EMBs, introducing hundreds of new ideas, products and supply chain solutions and securing £735m worth of business for EMBs. We dedicate ourselves to inspire the next generation of ethnic minority founders- offering them a platform to showcase their innovative ideas, and provide them access to knowledge, investment and market to help them grow and achieve their dreams!

MSDUK prides itself in getting consistent support from british and global firms, representing a wide range of industries. Our networks form the backbone of the year-round support they help us provide us to make Britain a more inclusive and prosperous society.
OUR EMB NETWORK
We have worked hand-in-hand with our corporate members to understand their individual supply chain dynamics; what, how, and when they buy, and capabilities they look for in any new suppliers.
This has helped us build and extended network of over 3,000 EMBs that are in over 40 different industry sectors and are of varied sizes and capabilities.
Our certification programme then helps us recruit the most relevant suppliers from this extended pool of 3,000+ supplier network.
