WHY ATTEND

Launching a successful prepared meal solutions program or in-store dining concept is no easy feat. Grocery retailers have to consider a number of challenges, including:
 
- Preparing meal solutions onsite or offsite
- How to scale and maintain quality
- Keeping up with meal and ingredient trends
- Maintaining food safety and sustainability
- Developing cross-merchandising opportunities with partners
- Recruiting and maintaining talent - especially culinary talent
 
Most important of all - how do you get your concepts to resonate with shoppers? How do you get them to incorporate your meal solutions into their daily routines?
 
The Total Meal Solutions Summit is here to help grocers like you win the battle for mealtime.

Build Basket Size with Insight Into Meal and Consumer Trends

Progressive Grocer, FMI and Datassential will present critical research on the topics that matter to you most, including ingredient and meal prep trends, tactics for building shopper loyalty and increasing sales, and the most successful strategies for bringing meal solution concepts to life that will engage the entire store. 

Discover How to Win Your Share of Stomach and Get Inspired by Real Examples that Work
