Discovering Diversity

with KeHE’s Virtual TrendFinder Event

Red Shoots joins KeHE's Diversity TrendFinder event from New Zealand!

In October, brands from around the world joined KeHE for an exclusive virtual Diversity TrendFinder event. As part of KeHE’s commitment to Diversity & Inclusion, the event gave over 100 diverse suppliers a chance to pitch products directly to our expert Category Management team and fast track them into distribution! That means, these brands could join the KeHE supply chain and exposure to our 40,000+ retail partners, which is game-changing!

The virtual event took place October 19-20. Throughout the event, the best participating suppliers were awarded Golden Tickets. The ticket allows the brand to move to the next phase. From there, the Category Management team will determine whether to onboard the Golden Ticket winner or given them a chance to participant in the KeHE Summer Show Next Generation Innovation Showcase (NGIS). The NGIS event will allow the brands to pitch their products to KeHE retailers to earn the chance to join KeHE distribution.
