Thank you for your interest in becoming or continuing to be a Missouri WIC authorized retailer. Here you will find everything you need to know to determine if your store meets the minimum criteria and stocking requirements necessary to be considered for the Missouri WIC program.

To become a Missouri WIC authorized retailer, each store must maintain the stocking requirements to be considered a full service grocery store and the WIC minimum stocking requirements. The store must have passed a sanitation inspection within the past year, have been in business in the current location for at least a year, be registered with the Missouri Secretary of State’s Office, and pass a pre-agreement site visit.

Authorized retailers are required to purchase all infant formula from approved licensed or authorized retailers, distributors, or wholesalers. Any distributor or wholesaler not on this list may contact the WIC state agency to request consideration for inclusion.

The specific criteria to be considered a Missouri WIC authorized retailer can be found in the eWIC Retailer Manual. The manual also has appendices for several forms, such as the Retailer Concern Form in Section VII.
