May 9th/Spring 2019 Meeting - Blount Fine Foods in Fall River, MA
May 9 event was a huge success. Blount Fine Foods hosted us and Premiere Response sponsored a great lunch. We heard much relevant information on Innovation and trying to understand what the customer wants before they know what they want. Our final discussion, before the tour of the soup making plant, was on the challenges and successes with Social Media. Speakers from Blount, Panera and Ocean Spray made the day both interesting and fun - and lots of yummy take-a-ways!
Blount was kind enough to arrange a tour of the fascinating soup making plant. An interesting view of robots and humans working together and the great attention to cleanliness!
February 28th/Winter 2019 Meeting - Lindt USA in Stratham, NH

Astute, much appreciation to you for sponsoring, and Ryan Gooley, your trip in for the MidWest was well worth it on our end as the information you presented was fascinating.
