That’s why this fall, the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) have come together to launch:
Collaborating for Growth
INSIGHTS - INNOVATION - EXECUTION
The conference will address new marketing, technological, demographic and merchandising trends in the CPG and food retailing industry, and will focus on greater collaboration, problem-solving and relationship-building between manufacturers and their retail partners to achieve sustainable growth.
