Salt Lake City, Utah, welcomed 2,200 industry professionals for the 2018 KeHE Spring Show from October 3-4. Participants connected on the purchasing of natural and organic specialty and fresh products for 2019’s first quarter. An educational panel of industry frontrunners offered insight into various ways to utilize data and drive business.

“We take it one step further to educate show attendees on the data available and the power it has to grow a business. It allows them to leave with products backed by a strategy. We are proud to continue to connect thousands of retailers with the products consumers crave to drive success in the marketplace,” said Brandon Barnholt, KeHE’s President & CEO.

A wooden KeHE Cares token was given to each attendee for them to drop into one of four buckets that represented a partnering organization around the world: Restoration61 in Chicago, Stung Treng School in Cambodia, Warriors Circle in North Dakota, and Mission Lazarus in Honduras. KeHE Cares donated $5 for every token to each organization.
