MATTHEWS, N.C. Harris Teeter plans to hold a virtual Supplier Diversity Summit, and it is inviting vendors that meet the criteria to apply to participate. The summit is set for March 28 to March 30, and is designed to help the grocery chain find and work with suppliers that are at least 51% owned, operated and managed by people who are: disadvantaged, disabled, LGBTQ+, military veterans, minorities and/or women. To quality, suppliers also need to sell grocery, general merchandise or beauty and personal care products.

“Our goal is for Harris Teeter – our people and our products – to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve,” says Danna Robinson, director of corporate affairs for Harris Teeter.  “Through the identification and support of minority-owned businesses, Harris Teeter will cultivate new vendor relationships to empower diverse suppliers and enhance economic growth.”

Certified minority-, LGBTQ+-, woman-, veteran- and disability-owned businesses with retail-ready products can apply here by Friday, February 10. Suppliers are being sought for these categories:

  • Perishables
  • Non-Perishables
  • Non-Foods
  • Health & Beauty Care
  • General Merchandise

Harris Teeter is partnering with RangeMe, an ECRM company with an online product sourcing platform, to manage all product submissions by qualifying and connecting suppliers with the appropriate Harris Teeter associates.

Upon receipt of applications, Harris Teeter will review and select the vendors they would like to meet with virtually through the ECRM Connect meeting platform. Suppliers not chosen for the event will still be accessible through RangeMe and may be reviewed by Harris Teeter again in the future.

Vendors which do not qualify for the summit which is specifically for diverse vendors carrying services or products within of the categories mentioned above, are encouraged to submit information for consideration through the retailer’s Supplier Community page.
