    Date: May 23, 2024
    Time: 9:00 AM - 1:45 PM EDT
    Event Description:

    Transitioning from direct-to-consumer to retail is a major milestone for many small food and beverage brands. However, the excitement of landing shelf space at major retailers can be short-lived if companies don't know how to effectively navigate the key challenges of entering the retail space.

    Join us for a half-day event to gain an inside perspective from experts in retail, warehousing, marketing, branding, and food safety.


    Event includes lunch, presentations, and Q&A.


    Lunch is sponsored by Georgia Grown and will include products from Georgia Grown companies!
