BI-LO will hold a local supplier event Thursday, April 16th. This initiative allows local suppliers to pitch their products to BI-LO executives in hopes of their goods being featured in local BI-LO stores. BI-LO is seeking suppliers to provide products in the finished good, pre-packaged, general merchandise and produce categories, including:
  • Sauces, salsas and marinades
  • Packaged mixes, spices and rubs
  • Packaged frozen foods
  • Bottled, canned or packaged beverages
  • Cleaning products
  • Health and beauty products
  • GM (pots, pans, brooms, seasonal toys...etc)
  • Fresh Local Produce (Fruits and Vegetables)
Commitment to Local BI-LO is committed to connecting customers with highly innovative suppliers and engaging with the communities it serves. This initiative is especially helpful for local companies that would normally be overlooked due to size and lack of experience working with large retailers. BI-LO strives to bring the personal touch by selecting unique products in individual markets based on what resonates with their customer base.
