Internationally, the Houston-headquartered company targeted supply chain transformation and business integration.

“Our top-line results for the first quarter were solid, particularly in our U.S. Foodservice segment,” commented Tom Bené, President and Chief Executive Officer at Sysco.

“We continue to see expense challenges in the warehouse and transportation areas of our supply chain, which we anticipate will persist. We remain focused on the execution of our strategic priorities, which we believe will serve as the roadmap for additional growth and value creation.”
