Yesterday, I met the Produce Director Phil Cassise at Plum Market (3 locations- Ann Arbor, Bloomfield Hills, and West Bloomfield). The store is similar to Whole Foods (incredible- really!!!).
He is looking for Michigan items for his Produce departments.
He is looking for refrigerated items to incorporate into Produce. There is no slotting fees, and he is very interested in items now. I think if he waits until the conference, we'll miss out on the holiday sets/buying done in October.
His contact information is below. I figured you might want to touch base with him since I don't know all the items currently with the Product Center.
I did give the store management a conference flyer as well.
