Event Director Bill Doherty states “We continually challenge ourselves to provide unparalleled buyer-supplier networking opportunities at this event and our attendees love the outcome. We had a phenomenal turnout in St. Augustine, Florida earlier this year, and have responded to a great number of past attendees who wanted us to move the event to September.”

Jamie Bouchard, Director of Deli for Price Chopper Supermarkets described the experience “This past February was the first time I was able to attend FirstSource Deli and Cheese 1on1. All I can say is “WOW”. This event was put together very well. The event brought you in, taught you all that you wanted to know about a particular topic and then put you in direct contact with the folks that drive the market. And all this took place in just a few days”.
