Getting your products in the shopping cart is the ultimate goal!

The food industry is challenging for producers and processors. Our industry is changing so fast and there are no easy categories. There are opportunities for your products and Peter will help you find them. His knowledge of the food industry started in a store, then he worked with Canada’s largest food retailer for 19 years and since leaving Loblaw, he has worked with producers and processors from coast to coast to help them get their products in the shopping cart.

Our proprietary C.A.R.T. process will help you understand where you need to focus with your products to generate the right sales more often. Peter will guide you through the differences between consumers and customers and you how you need to appeal to both, with one product. You will hear real life stories about our industry, what is happening today and what will happen tomorrow.

It’s not about making great products to sell, it’s about selling the great products you make” - Peter Chapman
