A WINNING FORMULA, GUARANTEED MEETINGS!

The Agri-Food Export Group – Canadian partner of ECRM (Efficient Collaborative Retail Marketing) – is offering you a unique formula for individual meetings with buyers in your product categories. Being housed in the same hotel, buyers and manufacturers can meet during their appointments but also during the many social activities organized. In addition, ECRM's MarketGate software will allow you to have effective meetings because they give you access to all relevant information about the buyers you will meet during the event. This is a different trade show formula and companies can really get good contact out of it!

 

Store brands are experiencing unprecedented growth (Specialty Food News, 2019). Across U.S. outlets, they have amassed over $143 billion in sales over the latest year, a figure that’s up nearly $14 billion since 2015. Stigma and stereotypes have faded for store brands and name brands, respectively. Forty-percent of surveyed Americans say they would pay the same or more for the right store branded product, while only 26% of those surveyed feel that name brands are worth the extra price (Nielsen, 2019). This is a great opportunity for the various retailers who are now looking to diversify their product offering and initiate a premiumization of their private label products. Will you miss that boat?
