Walmart is leading American renewal through its commitment to purchase an additional $250 billion in products made, sourced or grown in the U.S. by 2023. By investing in products that support American jobs, Walmart can play a role in accelerating growth in U.S. manufacturing. By collaborating with suppliers, engaging industry experts, and leveraging our scale, Walmart’s commitment could create up to 1 million new American jobs*.
