Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At Ingles Markets, we know we are so much more than a grocery store. We are made up of associates, customers, and vendors. Each individual is as unique and different as the next individual, but our differences are what makes us better, stronger, and unified. Ingles Markets supports and encourages diversity, equity and inclusion throughout our Corporate Office, Distribution Center, Retail Stores, and within each community we are located.

While we don’t have all the answers, we do believe we can play a bigger role to help fight stereotypes. We begin by looking within. We will enhance our training and awareness programs for all our associates. We need to face our emotions, understand our biases, and open our hearts. We need and value people with different backgrounds, different races, and different abilities.

Together, we stand as one community.
