Event description

Description

Opportunities for selling Kentucky-grown produce are increasing and finding the best buyer match is important for a profitable relationship. This Produce Grower-Buyer Meet-Up will be the single largest event bringing together buyers and growers and is co-hosted for the second year by the Kentucky Vegetable Growers Association, the Kentucky Horticulture Council and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.

The event begins promptly at 9 a.m. with buyer introductions. Produce buyers include chefs, retail, and distribution representatives. At the first event last year, 34 buyers were represented including Kroger, Walmart, Houchens, AWG, Whole Foods, Good Foods Co-op and other distributors who reach all levels of grocery outlets.

This year, you will have a chance to meet one-on-one in a “speed date” format to exchange contact information and match up products and needs with these and other key buyers. Face-to-face meetings with experts in food safety, organic production, and marketing will also be offered. A farm tour will be available following the event.
