If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact Dean Post, Supervisor for Ontario Food Exports as per the details below.
Interested in the Orlando area? Want to learn more about retailers such as Publix and The Fresh Market, distributors and merchandising in the region?
Spend two days touring remarkable grocery retailers in the Greater Orlando area and see the potential for your products in the market. This investment of your time will help you better understand the US market place (including on-shelf pricing, POS, potential competitors, etc.) and be better prepared to sell your products to US-based retailers.
Planned tours will feature several strong regional retailers, some smaller independent retailers plus the opportunity to meet with private label expert and former Winn-Dixie buyer, Joe McKie, who will be traveling with us for this two-day program. Joe will not only provide invaluable insight into the market, but also the buying process. Joe's bio is attached for your review.
More information on the tours may be found in the attached information. The final itinerary will be tailored to the participants.
This is a great program for graduates of our PROFIT New-to-Exporting program and others keen on the US market.
