Naperville, Illinois-based KeHE Distributors has partnered with Sprouts Farmers Market and RangeMe for a special entry opportunity for innovative brands that embody diversity and inclusion.
Committed to supporting its retail partners in their quest for innovation and diversity, KeHE is foraging and reviewing submissions for brands that are mission-based, minority, women, veteran, LGBTQ or disability-owned and will introduce the final picks to Sprout’s Category Management team.
The campaign not only enables Sprouts, a retailer known for incubating startup natural brands, to discover new-to-market products but also creates a unique opportunity for brands to gain immediate access to shelves at one of the largest natural retailers in the nation.
Applications are open through June 21. To learn more about the campaign and the different ways KeHE supports suppliers, visit kehe.com/suppliers.
