Meijer hosting Lift Local Supplier Event

Small and local businesses are encouraged to apply for Meijer’s Lift Local Supplier Event, giving business owners a platform to showcase their products.

Businesses that manufacture or grow retail-ready products in Indiana and Michigan can apply to have their product reviewed by Meijer buyers and put on the RangeMe website so local products can be browsed by local buyers.

“Our partnerships with vendors in our footprint allow us to directly impact our local economies,” said Peter Whitsett, Meijer Executive Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing. “By featuring local products, we’re able to support small businesses while providing our customers with a greater sense of community, offering items that resonate with their values and culture. This event helps us find those unique products and continue sourcing locally.”   

Business owners must apply by May 20 for consideration.

Business owners whose products fall into the following categories are encouraged to apply:

  • Grocery, including fresh, deli, and bakery
  • Baby
  • Beauty and personal care
  • Over-the-counter and wellness

After applications are in, Meijer teams will select the vendors they want to meet and invite them to a virtual or in-person meeting.

Selected products will be featured during Meijer’s July 19-21 virtual event.

Suppliers not chosen for the July event will still be accessible through the RangeMe registration and can be viewed by Meijer buyers in the future.
