2014 - A Year in Review

2014 Food & Beverage Industry Study
Companies in the Food & Beverage industry currently face many challenges. What role should digital marketing and social media strategic initiatives take in the next year? What factors most influenced 2014 sales growth and could continue to do so in 2015? How have they responded to the Affordable Care Act?
 
The 2015 Food and Beverage Industry Survey will be coming soon!  Keep an eye out for it.
WeiserMazars hosted its 12th annual New York Food & Beverage Forum on October 22, 2014 at the de Seversky Mansion. We were honored to have a distinguished panel including Andy Unanue, Associated Food Holdings, LLC., Or Raitses, Best Market, Ian MacGregor, The Lobster Place & Robert Milas, Wells Fargo Bank. We were also thrilled to once again have John Kominicki, former editor of Long Island Business News as the panel moderator. It was another great event with nearly 200 C-level executives in attendance.
