The Food Marketing Institute's Annual Business Conference provides a tremendous opportunity for suppliers to interact with their distributor trading partners. Within this program, participants can communicate strategies, goals, and operational concerns in an effort to achieve greater efficiency and profitability. As the needs of consumers change and competition intensifies, increased dialogue between wholesalers/retailers and suppliers is critical to meeting today's business challenge. The communication established between wholesaler/retailer executives and their supplier counterparts produces mutual benefits throughout the year.
