Child Nutrition Purchasing

CIESC’s Region 9 Food Service Purchasing Cooperative is a nationally recognized purchasing cooperative.  Collectively Region 9 represents the largest K-12 food and product purchasing agent in Indiana.  Direct to Manufacturer bidding on USDA Commodities assures that any rebates are sent directly to the district, as is mandated.  This is only one way Region 9 continues to improve their programs and pricing.  In addition to purchasing incentives the networking opportunities will allow your Food Service Department to remain on the cutting edge of services and fiscal efficiency.  Current bids include primary vendor, bread, and dairy.  Bid integrity is Region 9’s secret to success!
