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 2021 Virtual Making It In Michigan event on May 6, 2021.

As a part of the Making It In Michigan event, PMBC & MDARD will host buyer-supplier matchmaking bringing together purchasers including grocers, retailers, distributors, institutional buyers, or anyone looking to procure Michigan-made food, with suppliers from around the state – all with one common goal to strengthen Michigan’s food supply chain.

BUYERS: Are you looking to purchase or distribute Michigan-grown/Michigan-made food? Join us for this free, dynamic matchmaking opportunity to connect with Michigan suppliers with an expansive product mix from around the state.  Whether you have specific purchasing needs or are just looking to learn more about innovative food products – we’ll get you connected to Michigan food and agriculture businesses in one-on-one virtual meetings to discuss opportunities to buy local.  Visit for more participation details.

SUPPLIERS: Would you like to get your Michigan-made innovative food products in front of buyers and distributors?  A list of participating buyers and their purchasing needs will be available in a supplier application at  Not all suppliers may be selected for meetings but will be able to take advantage of other great Making It In Michigan resources and programming opportunities.
