Vericool Packaging, the developer of sustainable Vericoolers® that

chain shipping in the pharma, life sciences and food kit/meal
subscription industries, announced today that it has been named a
Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) by the Western Region of the National
Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. (NMSDC).

cold chain packaging, we are proud to be certified by the Western Region
of the National Minority Supplier Development Council as a
minority-owned enterprise,” said Darrell Jobe, CEO of Vericool. “Working
with diverse suppliers has become a recognized part of many companies’
supply chain planning, particularly those that include this in their
corporate social responsibility goals.”

expanding its manufacturing and operations across the United States, has
obtained certification number WR0366.
To meet the growing need for supplier diversity, NMSDC matches its
nearly 12,000 certified minority-owned businesses to its network of more
than 1,400 corporate members who wish to purchase their products,
services and solutions. NMSDC, a unique and specialized player in the
field of minority business enterprise, is proud of its unwavering
