Boston, MA, United States
Nova Scotia Business Inc. is currently recruiting Nova Scotia seafood, agri-food and non-alcohol beverage companies interested in participating at the Taste of Canada showcase in Boston, MA.
The Taste of Canada showcase is being organized by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry (AF), in collaboration with the Consulate General of Canada in Boston, Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada and its provincial partners.
This professional food showcase event is designed as a mini Canada-only display of qualified export-ready and capable Canadian suppliers to showcase their food and beverage products in a tabletop setting, and meet one-on-one with buyers.
Pre-screened US importers, buyers and distributors from the retail and foodservice industries will be invited to attend. Unlike trade shows, this intimate forum provides buyers and suppliers the time to meet, discuss suppliers’ capabilities, review buyers’ needs, and negotiate possible synergies.
Some of the buyers to be invited include:
Stop&Shop, Hannaford, Market Basket, Price Choppers, Roche Bros, Shaw’s/Star Market as well as national brands including Walmart, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods United Natural Foods Inc. (UNFI), Sysco, US Foods, Performance Food Group, Gordon Food Service, Reinhart, Services Group of America, SUPERVALU, Kroger, Target, Roundy’s, Lunds & Byerly’s, Walgreens, Meijer, Jewel-Osco, Cub Food, Sam’s Club, Safeway, Albertsons, Acme Markets, Aldi, Hy-Vee, Kowalski’s, Amazon, ADW Acosta, Whole Foods Market, Giant Eagle, Save-A-Lot, Shop 'n Save, Roundy’s, Kehe Foods, Topco, Nash Finch, MMI Brandsand, Publix, Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market and many more.
