Every year on December 19, Russia celebrates Procurement Day. This professional holiday has not yet been officially established, but its celebration has already become a good tradition in many Russian companies, which are growing every year.
The proposal to celebrate this date was made in 2001 by the Simplex company, a supplier of polymer raw materials in Russia, and the idea was enthusiastically supported by the professional community of suppliers.
Interestingly, the well-known heroine of Russian folk tales, the Golden Fish, was chosen as the symbol of the day. According to the founders of the holiday, it is this image of a fabulous earner and craftswoman who is able to get anything (in the modern language, “cover any needs”), in the best possible way reflects the hard everyday work of the “mining” services and the work of suppliers, which is very important for each enterprise.
