Meet the Buyer x Lidl

October 24 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Our Meet the Buyer sessions are designed to connect passionate food entrepreneurs with possible customers, buyers, and/or category managers. Monthly, we invite buyers from all different categories of the food scene, like; supermarkets, online retailers, hotel chains, wholesalers, restaurant owners, etc. These sessions offer exclusive sales opportunities, feedback, and/or professional connections that you won’t get anywhere else. In this session, we welcome Lidl at KR!

About Lidl
With more than 440 stores, 21,000 employees and brand awareness of almost 100%, Lidl has become an indispensable part of the Dutch supermarket landscape since the start in 1997. Lidl stands for daily grocery shopping of the highest quality for the lowest price, with the goal to make a sustainable and healthy lifestyle affordable and accessible.
