Bayer Supplier Day 2021 - Pause-Reflect-Rethink-Restart

Igniting networks for future success

Our ultimate goal at Procurement at Bayer is to ignite our networks and set a new precedent for collaboration. When we jointly put our minds to solving some of the biggest challenges we face, then there are no limits, and our ambitions can flourish. Our virtual Bayer Supplier Day 2021 was the moment to pause, reflect, rethink and restart. Nearly 400 companies participated in the event and we had the opportunity to refocus our energy and drive towards “health for all, hunger for none”.
