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
