Ali will be moderating the panel discussion on 'Does "Local" Matter':
Does “Local” Matter?:
The concept of local foods is not new but revived consumer interest and the booming local food production and marketing in recent years reveal one thing: local foods are coming to the marketplace more readily than ever before. This panel will look at the present, as well as the future of marketing local food and seafood, the who, what and why consumers choose local products, what ‘local’ means to them, how ‘local’ as a marketing strategy and the economic impact that buying local has. Learn how connecting to your community can be leveraged in your efforts to increase sales, visibility and your business' overall success.
