Event Description

Your chance to meet one-on-one with a diverse group of buyers at our exclusive FLAVORS OF CAROLINA show is here! Join us April 1st in Concord for this unique reception designed to help bring awareness to your products and boost your sales.

What is the Flavors of Carolina?  This event is an upscale food show where North Carolina products are proudly on display. As an exhibitor, this is your opportunity to showcase your products and be discovered by retailers, distributors, restaurants, etc. Be prepared to provide samples, discuss pricing and ask the buyers how you can get your products into their stores or on their restaurant’s menu.

For our exhibitors, we provide an elegant setting that takes this event beyond the typical food show. A buffet featuring North Carolina products as well as complimentary cocktails entice guests to mingle and visit with you. Your company will be featured in our Exhibitor Directory and we’ll provide you with a complete list of all invited guests. Prior to the show, we will conduct a meeting with Food Lion to give exhibitors an opportunity to learn more about selling to Food Lion. We hope that you will plan to join in on this meeting for some useful information.

Who is invited?  Top officials and buyers from individual restaurants to foodservice distributors to major grocery chains will attend. A list of companies that will be invited is attached.
