“I don’t know why we didn’t join the Good Food EXPO before – it has been helpful on so many levels. We were able to interact with buyers from a number of companies that helped us not just gain customers, but to learn what they are looking for and how to develop products that suit them as well as hone our message to let them know we have what they want.”
