Rimi works closely with local producers, growers and cooperatives. We constantly make sure that a wide range of local products in all product categories are available at Rimi stores.
In 2020 we created the campaign “Good for you, good for your country” to invite customers across Baltics to choose products made in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. There are more than 50 farmers stores in the largest Rimi stores, providing a wide assortment of local producers, supporting local farmers. Farmer stores “Talu toidab”/“Klēts”/“Vikis” not only strengthens Rimi cooperation with local producers, but also makes the products of local farmers more accessible to a wide range of buyers.
