BEMA held its annual meeting on June 19-24, 2014 in Fairmont Southhampton, Bermuda. Our very own National Accounts Manager, Patrice Painchaud was in attendance where wholesale bakers and snack producers got a chance to connect and interact with vendors and customers from around the industry.
During the meeting, BEMA formed various customer panels (Sweets Snacks & Co-Pack panel, Family Owned Bakeries Panel and BIF -Bakery Industry Forum). These panels included guests from Pepperidge Farm/Campbell Soup Co, Baptista Bakery, Turano Bakery, Amoroso Bakery, Aryzta and Dawn Foods just to name a few. Throughout the six day event, the panels held information and discussion sessions where safety, innovation, niche markets and challenges of the day were discussed. What a great way to bring all sectors of the baking industry together to enhance dialog and culture!
