The SUNY New Paltz School of Business hosted its first annual Food Marketing Summit on March 30. The event featured a panel of food industry leaders, each of whom shared a singular perspective on the business of food with the many students and community members in attendance.
Executives from ShopRite Supermarkets, C&S Wholesale Grocers, JOH Food Brokers, Satin Fine Foods, Inc. and the online grocer Rosie discussed their approaches to overcoming the challenges posed in this dynamic industry, and counseled students on the professional and personal value of careers in food.
The SUNY New Paltz American Marketing Association won a Bronze award at the International Conference in New Orleans over spring break in late March. They placed as a top 25 chapter internationally for chapter operations for the 2015-16 academic year.
