The Strategic Issues Series is a complimentary IFMA Manufacturer Members-only forum that focuses on issues that are top of mind for foodservice manufacturers. There is no additional cost to attend, as this event is included in the Member’s annual dues. From GPOs to The Distributor of the Future, the series brings to light critical challenges and how manufacturers can take advantage of them to create growth opportunities.

The series provides an abundant opportunity to network, make new contacts, and most importantly, discuss important issues to the manufacturer community.
