“In celebration of Black Business Month this August, the Summit is aimed to highlight the achievements, contributions, and economic impact made by Black entrepreneurs and business owners,” says Carla Hendon, director of Supplier Diversity at Meijer. “This event also gives Black-owned businesses the opportunity to demonstrate the quality, uniqueness, and value of their products directly to our buyers.”

Participating Black vendors can expect:

  • An in-person booth display exhibit for their business during the summit.
  • Allotted time to meet one-on-one with Meijer merchants to pitch products, address questions, and receive direct feedback.

The Summit is open to all potential and existing U.S. vendors, as well as growing vendors looking to expand their brand into larger Meijer stores. Interested black-owned businesses that manufacture or grow retail-ready products can register here by July 14.For questions, please contact: diversevend.diversevend@meijer.com.
