KeHe Wins Coveted Trade Show Award and Announces New Partnership

Romeoville, IL

KeHE is proud to announce that the Trade Show News Network (TSNN) has named the KeHE's Summer Selling Show one of the 2013 Top 25 Fastest-growing Trade Shows in terms of attendance growth. KeHE's Summer Selling Show is the only food industry show to make this year's list.
Ted Beilman, KeHE's EVP of Marketing and Merchandising, says, "KeHE's Summer Selling Show has grown rapidly because of our unique focus on the May through August selling period.” The attendance for shows awarded a place in the top 25 grouping were those shows able to increase attendance between 2010-2012. The 2014 Summer Selling Show will be in New Orleans, Louisiana, once again growing the relationships between suppliers and retailers. KeHe remains dedicated to providing Natural & Organic, Specialty & Gourmet, International & Multicultural and Fresh products to over 35,000 retail outlets throughout North America.

To further impact North America and specifically the north east of the United States, KeHe, has partnered with the Independent Natural Food Retailers Association based in Minneapolis. "We view Independent Natural Food Stores as a vital part of our industry, and are excited to partner with INFRA and its members to provide more distribution options and to support the continued growth and success of these stores," says KeHE President and Chief Executive Officer, Brandon Barnholt. INFRA is a purchasing cooperative owned and governed by natural and organic food retailers of all sizes "strengthening our members through collaboration to forge a sustainable future."

Congrats to KeHE on all the exciting news!
