April 10-11, 2019

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA | Philadelphia Airport Marriott

Solutions. Connections. Reinvigoration.

The energy was tangible at this year's PMA Fresh Connections: Retail! Over 170 attendees gathered April 11-12 at the Philadelphia Airport Marriott to make new connections and gain new business solutions. From the cocktail reception and immersive UnConference to the optional Produce Rescue Glean and Produce Retail Tour, attendees were surrounded by peers and potential partners at every turn, and the buzz could be felt over the entire two days.  

Members of the retail supply chain connected with each other, and with executives and managers from top U.S. retailers, including:

  • ACME Markets
  • Affiliated Foods, Inc.
  • Associated Wholesale Grocers
  • C&S Wholesale Grocers      
  • Giant Martins
  • HelloFresh        
  • Krasdale Foods
  • Loblaws Inc.
  • McCaffrey Markets  
  • Meijer   
  • Military Produce Group 
  • Rutters
  • Southeastern Grocers 
  • The Kroger Co.  
  • Wakefern Food Corporation    
  • Wegmans Food Markets, Inc.
  • and more!

The fast-paced UnConference was more energetic, collaborative and flexible than ever, allowing attendees to self-customize, find answers quickly, and leave with ideas and connections.

The optional events were also a huge success, too! New this year, the Philadelphia Wholesale Produce Market Rescue Glean engaged 25 volunteers to rescue nutritious produce and aid those in need. The Philadelphia Wholesale Produce Market Tour guided attendees through the market while introducing them to new contacts and key retailers.

Thank you to our speakers, sponsors and attendees for making PMA Fresh Connections: Retail such a huge success!
