2024 Foodservice Buyer Sourcing Meetings

July 25-26, 2024 – Monterey, CA

This unique opportunity, like speed dating, allows foodservice produce suppliers to connect face-to-face with foodservice operators and distributors, opening the door for more in-depth conversations in the future. This is also a great way to drive traffic to your booth the following day.

Companies are carefully matched according to criteria provided in pre-meeting applications. If selected, produce suppliers will meet for 10 minutes with five different buyer companies. Space is limited, and spots will be filled with an ultimate goal of including a diverse mix of produce suppliers and buyers.
