Supplying to Handicare
Handicare's mission statement is to offer solutions and support to increase the independence of people with disabilities or elderly people, as well as to improve the convenience of those who are caring for them. This is achieved by identifying ourselves with their individual needs, and the needs of our business partners.
Handicare Group Purchasing is responsible for optimising the Group's contractual terms while maintaining the quality of the goods and services purchased, striving to build balanced relationships with Suppliers. Handicare's purchasing process complies with the principles of internal control and Group Authorisation Policy concerning the separation of roles and responsibilities.

Our Suppliers are considered as important assets in facilitating value added and continued growth of the Group. Relationships are based on mutual respect, sound ethical business practices and credibility. Procurement activities are conducted within the framework of the Handicare Code of Conduct and applicable laws and regulations.
