Buyer-Supplier Matchmaking

Making It in Michigan

Pure Michigan Business Connect (PMBC) and the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) are excited to partner with the MSU Product Center on the 2024 Making It In Michigan event. As a part of the Making It In Michigan event, PMBC & MDARD will host one-on-one matchmaking meetings bringing together purchasers including grocers, retailers, distributors, institutional buyers, or others looking to source Michigan-made food and beverage products, with Michigan food, beverage and agriculture businesses from around the state.

Buyers include Chartwell’s/Compass Group, Cherry’s LLC, Corewell Health, Fresh Thyme, Kids Food Basket, Kroger, Meijer Market Format Stores, SpartanNash, and Zingerman’s Creamery.  

A supplier application is required for participation and can be submitted HERE.  Not all businesses may be selected for meetings, but are able to take advantage of other great Making It In Michigan resources and programming opportunities.  Please note that submitting the supplier application is separate from the conference & tradeshow registration.
