Meet the Buyer x PLUS Retail

October 18 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free for members

Our Meet the Buyer sessions are designed to connect passionate food entrepreneurs with potential customers, buyers, and/or category managers. Monthly, we invite buyers from all different categories of the food scene, like supermarkets, online retailers, hotel chains, wholesale, 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 PLUS Retail!

About PLUS Retail
PLUS recently merged with Coop, and walks ahead in the developments around good food with a total of 550 supermarkets. PLUS is big enough to make a difference and small enough to be flexible. Their mission: A sustainable business operation that places the costumer first, with the focus on good food, for everybody every day.

– You can also leave your product(s) behind for the buyer, Kitchen Republic will collect your feedback.

How does it work?
– We offer time slots of 10 minutes per company. This might sound short, but it’s definitely long enough to make a lasting impression.
