Together We Inspire Change

At Kroger, we strive every day to elevate the importance of food and nutrition access to help all people live healthier lives. We believe Food as Medicine is a dedicated, educated, and personalized approach to eating and enjoying healthy and nutritious foods and preventing illness before it starts. As we sit at the nexus of food and pharmacy, we are in the position to have an impact on outcomes through simplified health, wellness, and nutrition solutions. With your collaboration, Kroger Health will continue to accelerate innovations in accessible, holistic solutions that impact and inspire our associates, customers, and communities every day. 

Nourishing Change Conference

The Nourishing Change Conference is dedicated to exploring the transformative power of Food as Medicine as well as other critical personalized health interventions that can improve the well-being of individuals and communities. The conference will drive important conversations on how we can work together to impact and drive change across the communities we serve.  


Emerging Brands

Attention all better-for-you, emerging brands focused on helping people live healthier lives! During the Nourishing Change Conference, we are offering a platform for you to share your innovative ideas and products.

If your food or non-food brand is not yet selling in or has minimal distribution (2 or fewer divisions) within the Kroger Co. family of stores, we invite you to apply for one of the limited spots available in the Nourishing Change Conference Product Pavilion. If selected, you have the opportunity to display your brand, provide product information and samples for $1,500 allowing you to be highlighted to Kroger leadership, merchandising and Kroger Health associates, as well as other leaders in the health and nutrition industry attending the conference.

Along with the opportunity to share your better-for-you products, participants in the Product Pavilion will be evaluated by industry leaders, with the top three health-forward products being selected for distribution in up to 500 The Kroger Co. family of stores. The top three brands will also have the unique opportunity to present their product and share their brand story on the main stage during the conference.

If you are interested in applying to feature your emerging, better-for-you brand at the Nourishing Change Conference, please email [email protected] by May 10th!
