It’s common knowledge that Walmart is the world’s largest retailer. But Good Food and Natural Products entrepreneurs should also know that Walmart is rapidly expanding its assortment of “better for you products.”

Naturally Chicago is happy to present this educational session our first to focus on Walmart – at which you will learn the basics, as well as advanced tips from Walmart experts, about how the giant retailer works. We will help you master how and when to approach this strategic retailer!

This program will be led by leaders of New Nexus Group, located in Bentonville, Arkansas near Walmart’s world headquarters, and will also include emerging Chicago entrepreneurs who have succeeded at getting their products carried by Walmart. They will be joined on a panel by representatives of four businesses that have succeeded at working with Walmart (the first two are Chicago-based): Tracey Halama, Senior Vice President of Sales of Vital Proteins; Matt Matros, Founder of Limitless Beverages; Mark Maggio, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Madhava Natural Sweeteners; and Jeff Grossman, Vice President of Sales for YumEarth.

Entrepreneurs should not miss this opportunity to learn how to sell products to the world’s largest retailer.
