Both RangeMe and ECRM will be aiding the retailer with the summit by helping source, qualify and connect suppliers with the appropriate buyers.
Sourcing and product submissions will be made through RangeMe, while ECRM will qualify suppliers, create curated meeting schedules and facilitate face-to-face meetings with Hy-Vee buyers.
Submissions are currently being selected online across the grocery, produce, deli, general merchandise, frozen, dairy, health and beauty care categories.
