Meet the Buyer x The Maker Store

May 22 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free for members

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, you won’t get anywhere else. In this session, we welcome The Maker Store at KR!

About The Maker Store
The Maker Store is a unique store in De Hallen in Amsterdam West where only products from local brands are sold. You can go there for clothing, jewellery, interior design, and of course food and drinks from more than 80 different Amsterdam makers. Their audience consists of a good mix of tourists and locals, who are often looking for an original and high-quality souvenir or gift. In addition, there are also plenty of customers who can find something beautiful or tasty for themselves here!

Requirements The Maker Store
– It must be an Amsterdam brand. However, the production does not have to take place (completely) in Amsterdam, but they would like to see a demonstrable connection with the city from the maker or the product.
– The store is not specifically intended for food, so they don’t have a large refrigerator or freezer. But they are open to borrowing a fridge/freezer from the maker in order to be able to show their products.
– For the same reason, they prefer not to use products that have a very limited shelf life.
– In general, The Maker Store doesn’t buy, but works on a consignment basis.

Who will you meet during this session?
Siem Meijerink – Owner The Maker Store
Floor Wintgens – Floor Manager The Maker Store 

KR’s requirements:
– Be a member of the KR Community
– Arrive on time, assets prepared (tasting materials/presentation documents prepped) and ready to pitch
– As space is limited and time precious, please understand that KR and the guest buyer will select the most relevant food companies to see during each session as it relates to the buyer’s/company’s focus.
– You can also leave your product(s) behind for the buyer, KR 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.
– Applications for this MTB session will close on May 5. If selected, we will contact you the week prior with time slot details.
