Meet the Retail

Mon, 17th of May, 9:00 am - 11:00 am

As the inventor of the drugstore in Germany, Dirk Roßmann opened the first “drugstore market” in Hanover in 1972. Today the ROSSMANN group is one of the largest drugstore chains in Europe, including 2,196 in Germany (as of 1/2020). With 21,400 drugstore items, ROSSMANN presents a particularly extensive range.

So if you are a food or bev startup and interested to pitch your product directly to the people in charge – this one is for you!

Important notice: This event is only the first get-to-know-each-other, meaning it’s all about a perfect product and company pitch. This format is not a sales conversation. We, KitchenTown, connect you with the buyers in charge but will have no influence on further negotiations. So be smart and make a first good impression to follow-up in further conversations.
