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.
