Teaming up with ECRM Range Me, PDL will host four virtual events throughout the year where merchants from the brands of Ahold Delhaize USA will meet with potential new suppliers to learn about their expertise and offerings.
The events are timed throughout the year to allow vendors the best opportunity to win business from Ahold Delhaize USA brands.
