Researching different online/web based systems for ordering produce and other menu items from suppliers.  A lot of the systems I have found seem to be proprietary to a particular supplier or to a consortium.  While any recommendations, even for a proprietary system woudl be appreciated, I'm particularly interested in systems where I can compare produce and products from different suppliers and manufacturers.  Any advice?  Many thanks.

Hi, distributors! Here is a discussion topic from our online community, FDtalk. I wanted to check with you FohBoh folks on it as well. The question comes from Toni Rae Brotons, IFDA's Director of Education & Research, as she's busily planning sessions for our October conference. She needs to know what you distributors need/want to know! Here's how she phrases it:

"So what's keeping you awake at night? Who do you want to hear or talk to in Baltimore about problems or solutions? What are you looking forward to when you get there?"

Any category is fair game - warehousing, fleets, sustainability, HR, IT... anything!

We'd love to hear which areas you feel are needing more attention and education from us. Thanks for your input!

Greetings, I am a supplier of frozen foods to the institutional trade as well as just started my own line of Organic Blood Orange Juice from Sicily from the farm my family owns. The cousins wanted to sell the land but I decided buying it and giving it a go at the juice business was worth a shot. This allowed the people in the town(pop-2100) to continue taking what they needed from the land and adding some jobs to boot. I look forward to saying hello to all members in the group and willing to offer assistance and contacts to anyone that needs. Ciao, Alfredo

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
