Southeastern Grocers Inc., parent company and home of Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket, and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, is hosting a virtual Local & Diverse Supplier Connect event to collaborate with underrepresented suppliers, and in turn, provide stores with an expanded variety of locally relevant and diverse products.
The event will focus on sourcing products across grocery, household, fresh, frozen, personal care, pet, and baby merchandise, among other categories. SEG is partnering with ECRM and RangeMe to source, qualify, and connect suppliers with the appropriate buyers. During the upcoming Local & Diverse Supplier Connect event, planned for Nov. 1, participants will have the opportunity to engage with SEG buyers and category managers to share their company background, product information, and marketing plans.
This event will serve as SEG’s fourth event reaching out to diverse or local suppliers and follows the grocer’s most recent July Supplier Connect sourcing event. Currently, SEG works with nearly 300 diverse and local suppliers operating across Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Interested suppliers are invited to apply here until Sept. 11.
WHEN: Registration is open now through Sept. 11
SEG’s virtual Local Diverse Supplier Connect event will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 1.
