Stater Bros. Markets on Monday kicked off a “Local Fare” virtual forum to connect with local producers and manufacturers as a way to diversify its product offerings.
Local Fare will be held through Aug. 6 on RangeMe, an online product discovery and sourcing platform, at app.rangeme.com/staterbroslocal, Stater Bros. said Monday. The Southern California grocer noted that its category managers are seeking local suppliers in all categories, particularly products with dietary attributes identified as important by shoppers, including organic, non-GMO, plant-based, gluten-free, vegan and keto.
