DMA Values

DMA is a unified national foodservice distribution system whose shareholder-members are prominent regional foodservice distributors. Together we provide foodservice operators with the pricing, distribution and technological advantages of a national organization, and the service priority of a local business. Our success relies on unity and the ability to have aligned interests. We use the values set forth below as a guideline for our interactions with each other and our customers.

Our Values are Trust, Respect, Team Work, Communication, Integrity and Responsiveness. Our Focus is on the Customer.

Trust is the foundation of our business relationships and reputation and is predicated on honesty and candor. Our trust in each other gives us the power to maximize our effectiveness, take business risks, and ensure the long term viability of DMA. 

Respect and dignity are accorded to customers, shareholders and employees. 

Team Work and collaboration allow us to be stronger together than we are individually. We strive to support a unified technological platform to make us stronger. 

Communication is a vital two-way street; we strive for transparency and expect candor and support in return. 

Integrity in our business decisions and processes is essential. 

Responsiveness to customer needs and shareholder-members is vital to our success.
