Hy-Vee To Host Quarterly Best Of Local Brands Summit


West Des Moines, Iowa-based Hy-Vee Inc. will host its next quarterly Best of Local Brands Summit from Sept. 7-9 to expand and enhance the product offerings at its more than 285 retail stores in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Since the Best of Local Brands summits began in early 2021, more than 100 new brands have been selected and are available to Hy-Vee customers.

This year, Hy-Vee continues to elevate its efforts of identifying suppliers with diverse backgrounds and encourages minority-owned and women-owned businesses to apply for the quarterly summits. The summit will consist of 20-minute virtual interviews with selected suppliers.

Hy-Vee is accepting submissions for its Best of Local Brands Summit online here in the following categories of retail-ready products: grocery, produce, deli, general merchandise, frozen, dairy, health and beauty care. Submission deadline is July 18.

ECRM and RangeMe are helping the grocer source, qualify and connect with suppliers. All product submissions will be made through RangeMe, the online product discovery and sourcing platform. All meetings will be conducted through ECRM’s virtual meeting platform, ECRM Connect. Suppliers not chosen for participation in this summit will still be accessible through RangeMe and may be reviewed by Hy-Vee again in the future.

Hy-Vee Inc. is an employee-owned corporation operating more than 285 retail stores across eight Midwestern states. It ranks in the Top Five Most Trusted Brands and has been named one of the nation’s Top Three Favorite Grocery Stores.
