Selfridges seeking local producers for ‘meet the buyer’ events
Selfridges will hold three ‘meet the buyer’ events next month as it looks to recruit local food and drink producers for its food halls in its London, Birmingham and Manchester stores.
The retailer’s Your Food, Our Foodhall campaign is looking for locally produced food and drink for the Birmingham and Trafford outlets but is only seeking beers, wines and spirits for its London food hall.
Interested producers canapply by filling out a simple questionnaireabout their company and the products they would like to nominate before midnight on March 25.
Successful applicants will be emailed an invitation on March 31 to come into Selfridges’ offices in Birmingham Bullring (April 9), Manchester Trafford (April 11) or London Oxford Street (April 24) to present their products and ranges in a 30-minute session with a specific category buyer.
Chosen suppliers will then see their products launched in the stores in July during Selfridges’ two-month Celebration of Food event.
