Become a Vendor at River Valley Co-op!
Thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor at River Valley Co-op! We are always looking for new and exciting ways to provide fresh, local, seasonal, sustainable and accessible food to our entire community.
How to Apply
The first step in the onboarding process is to complete the River Valley Co-op New Vendor Questionnaire. Your responses will be reviewed by the Category Management Department for Center Store or managers in the fresh departments. Fully completing the questionnaire and providing us with the requested documents will help ensure an efficient onboarding process. Once the vendor questionnaire is complete, we will review your products based on our category schedule and request samples at that time. Please do not bring any samples or literature to the store or main office.
At this time, we're actively looking for the following products...
- Local or Regional Shelf-Stable Non-Dairy Beverages
- Local or Regional Dry Pantry Staples (including beans, rice and pasta)
Please note we are not carrying any food items containing CBD at this time, so we ask that you do not submit these products for consideration.
For Current Vendors with New Products
If you are a current vendor with a line extension or new product to introduce to the category team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a price list, as well as a downloaded and completed New Item Vendor Worksheet.
Please do not drop off samples or literature at the store or administrative office. Products will be reviewed based on a category schedule and at that time we will contact you about specific products needing to be sampled. We hope that this strategic approach will allow us to maintain a precise review process and decrease expenses for our local vendors.
