Our Pattison Food Group and Save On Foods’ team will take full advantage of the in person live event this October with Grocery Innovations Canada. From discovering the latest innovations in grocery, to re-establishing existing relationships, we look forward to seeing the industry together again. Our team is looking for new products and new opportunities to build partnerships with our supplier community to ensure our mutual success!

Jamie Nelson - Chief Operating Officer Pattison Food Group and EVP Save On Foods

For all our stores at Summerhill Markets, I cannot think of a more opportune time for retailers and suppliers to be connecting. The GIC show provides both parties to connect and explore new opportunities to partner together. Particularly as an independent retailer, I am always looking for new ways to differentiate and meet the changing tastes of my customers. I would urge all suppliers to be participating in GIC as together, we can turn the challenges of COVID into opportunities.

Christy McMullen - Owner, Summerhill Market

As retailers and wholesalers serving Newfoundland and Labrador, we welcome the opportunity to see ‘what’s new’ in our industry at the event with Grocery Innovations Canada.  The GIC Show is an opportunity that many on our team will take advantage of this fall. As independents, we are always interested in looking at new products and new opportunities and at this particular time, this has never been more important to us.

At Longo’s we are always looking for opportunities to build new relationships and to continue to differentiate our unique product offering. This year, with Grocery Innovations Canada being back in person, it will enable many more of our team members to participate. This is an exciting new opportunity and we look forward to connecting with a wide range of suppliers during the GIC Show.

Over the last few months during the challenges presented by COVID-19, the issue of supply for our stores has been of paramount importance. As we ready for the fall season, I will be a keen participant in Grocery Innovations Canada. New products are going to be of great interest to me as well as learning about new suppliers that we can build a relationship with as we move forward in this new normal.

Gordon Dean - Store Owner, Mike Dean’s Super Food Stores

Here at Calgary Co-op, we value our relationships with the supplier community and view it as an integral to our continued success.
