We’re talking all the ingredient suppliers, equipment companies, software companies, and industry peers I don’t see often enough; they are all here under one roof.

We are increasingly bringing more of our people to SNAXPO each year and they feel like they are getting a lot done while they’re here.”

"I think it's a great venue when it comes to snacking in terms of having customers who are current as well as potential customers to bring the opportunity to actually show the product - whereas people cannot just hear about it, but they can actually taste it and talk with their team about all the different opportunities within this space."
