For the past few months All-N-Food has been preparing for and hoping to get an invitation to Walmart's "Made in America" meeting.
Walmart invites over 700 vendors in every category from the thousands that apply to Bentonville, Arkansas. The event gives vendors the opportunity to meet with Walmart executives and decision makers to present their products for consideration in Walmart stores.
Every vendor that is invited to Bentonville is guaranteed a place on Walmart.com but not guaranteed in store placement. As part of the process, vendors have to meet with category buyer(s) to get selected for in store placement. If you leave the buyer meeting with a green card, your products are approved for retail sales in Walmart stores.
All-N-Food was fortunate enough to have been invited to buyer meetings for our dry rubs and sauces. We left Bentonville yesterday with TWO green cards! Our Yuengling line of dry rubs, BBQ and Wing sauces.
We can't thank Walmart enough for this great opportunity. It truly was an awesome day for All-N-Food!
