Big Y Looking For Hispanic Products

Big Y Foods logo

Big Y’s “Local Hispanic Vendor Discovery Tour” is underway. In preparation for the grand re-opening of the newly remodeled West Springfield, Massachusetts store, the company is in search of more locally produced Hispanic and Latin American items to be featured on its shelves.

The Hispanic grocery section features traditional ingredients and pantry staples from across Latin America including Brazil and the Caribbean, with a selection of tropical fruits, vegetables like plantains, ajicito peppers, an expanded selection of roots, sugar cane, chayote, an assortment of chili and more.

While it is currently looking for Hispanic and Latin American products, Big Y is always interested in adding new partners of all types from their store regions. The retailer partners with more than 500 local businesses with over 4,000 individual local products. These items can be found across every department in its stores.

Anyone who is interested in becoming a local partner can inquire at www.bigy.com/LocalPartners.

“Our mission at Big Y has always been to provide our customers with a diverse selection of high-quality products that meet their culinary needs and preferences,” said Mike Cormier, SVP of sales and marketing at Big Y. “With the introduction of our new Hispanic grocery section, we are excited to offer an even broader range of options, allowing our customers to explore and experience the rich and vibrant flavors of Latin American cuisine.”
