Supplier Diversity Partnership Helps Family Business Expand

Through a partnership with CVS Pharmacy established through our Supplier Diversity program, Los Angeles-based Gaviña & Sons has maintained its 140-year-old tradition of growing and roasting high-quality coffee beans while expanding its brands into new markets and new retail opportunities.

“CVS Pharmacy has been a great partner for us,” said Gaviña & Sons chief financial officer and head of sales José Gaviña. “[The partnership] has benefited our company by giving us value and a lot of exposure in different parts of the U.S. When that happens, more people see our products, and more people can purchase our products at CVS Pharmacy. They really treat us really well.”

Gaviña & Sons was recently profiled in Minority Business Entrepreneur Magazine. Read the full profile.
