It is impossible to drive around for too long without seeing a Sysco truck-- the company is huge, and saw over $44B in revenue last year! And with Sysco's US Foods merger, the new company will capture 27% market share. How are smaller scale producers supposed to become a part of and benefit from these national distribution networks that seek to take advantage of economies and scale and put pricing pressure on suppliers? Rebecca Dunn will present on work and research she and colleagues have done around just this issue. Come learn about partnerships and strategies that work (and some that have not worked...) to bring locally-sourced foods into conventional supply chains!
