If you're a local business and want to grow by getting your product in one of the most popular grocery stores in the Quad Cities, then this is good news for you. Every quarter, Hy-Vee hosts its Best of Local Brands Summit, and the submission for the next summit kicks off next week.

It's exciting to see local brands from the Quad Cities get put on shelves not only at Hy-Vee stores in our area but at other locations throughout the Midwest.


On Thursday, Hy-Vee announced that it will host its next quarterly Best of Local Brands Summit in August to expand and enhance the product offerings at its more than 285 retail stores in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Since the Best of Local Brands summits began in early 2021, more than 125 new brands have been selected and are available to Hy-Vee customers.

The summit will consist of 15- to 30-minute virtual presentations from selected suppliers and will take place Wednesday, Aug. 2.

ECRM and RangeMe are helping Hy-Vee source, qualify, and connect with suppliers. All product submissions will be made through RangeMe, an online product discovery and sourcing platform.
