UNFI Natural Winter Show Wrap-up and Show Schedule

UNFI’s Natural Winter Show took place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center from October 4th to 5th in Las Vegas, Nevada.  The show is a two-day event where more than 2,000 UNFI customer attendees connect with suppliers offering an assortment across grocery, fresh, organic and specialty departments. Open to multiple retailers and independent retailers alike, the show is a great way to meet with customers new and old.

Through events like this week’s Las Vegas show, UNFI will work alongside teams to help identify new and on-trend products, source the best deals and assist in supplier negotiations that are impactful to merchandising plans. The continued growth and success of Brands require our strong partnership with the entire UNFI team.

One aspect of UNFI’s shows is the Pitch Slam competition, presented by UNFI UpNext. The team discovers and mentors emerging brands, guiding their path to growth while helping deliver UNFI customers a regionally sourced, differentiated product mix. Pitch Slam pits suppliers against each other in an elevator pitch style competition. This year’s winner is Viv for your V.
