Co-retailing enables emerging food & beverage producers to launch and test their products on Seasoned Specialty Foods' store shelves. This supportive environment provides retail services and transacts sales for the maker, and they keep 100% of their sales. Know an emerging food business with a promising product?
Nominations will be reviewed and selected by MEF for a co-retail membership award. Recipients of an award will work with our partner, Seasoned Specialty Foods, and get the following services and benefits from its store:
- year round shelf space with dedicated staff for up to 3 SKUs,
- co-branding and product promotions,
- sales reports and customer feedback,
- connections to other services as available and
- 100% of your food sales.
The above is offered free of charge to the Award Recipient for a 12-month period. MEF will cover the membership fee for each recipient to receive these services and benefits.
All businesses nominated for this must be licensed by the MDA to make and sell food through stores and must have a product that is ready for sale.
While we will review all nominations, we give priority to businesses and products made from communities of color and/or women-owned businesses.
We are interested in the story behind the business, the maker and the product(s), in particular, their journey, experiences and what drives them.
