Carolina on My Mind

2019 Annual Convention

15 Years of Southern Hospitality

July 21-24, 2019

The Carolinas Food Industry Council (CFIC) Convention

The Convention is a highly-productive three-day event that brings together grocers, wholesalers, brokers, and vendors to learn, network, and grow business in the Carolinas’ ever-evolving food industry.

While the convention is not a trade-show (no booths to man or high-pressure sales!), it provides a variety of opportunities for vendors to showcase their products and services as well as for grocery retailers to sample products, learn about services, and build rapport with vendors and other food industry associates.

The beach venue presents the perfect opportunity to build professional and personal relationships in a relaxed, family-friendly setting, as together we the navigate the future of the grocery industry in the Carolinas.
