About the Event

Food Brand Summit is a two-day online conference for emerging food brands to learn from industry experts and connect with buyers, brokers, and distributors.

The first day of the conference will feature live seminars on topics covering everything from branding and marketing to financing where participants can ask questions in real time.

Day 2 features an industry-first online speed pitch where food brands can showcase their products and their company’s story in front of buyers, brokers, and distributors.


Get inspired to take your business to the next level by listening to speakers like Seth Goldman, Co-founder of Honest Tea, who secured an order from Fresh Fields (Whole Foods Market) for 15,000 bottles from a home-brewed batch of iced tea and mocked-up packaging that he presented to a buyer.


Make connections and grow your network by interacting with guest speakers during the live Q&A sessions, chatting with other food producers in the private online chat room, and by pitching your products to food buyers, brokers, and distributors.


Build your sales revenue by applying to the Speed Pitch where you can showcase your food products to buyers, brokers, and distributors from around the country. Not yet ready to get in front of buyers? Watch and learn as other food brands pitch their products.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Food Brand Summit?

With 25 years combined in the food industry, we know how hard it is for small food brands to open new retail channels. Trade shows can be great but they can cost thousands of dollars and are so chaotic you may never be found by the buyers you want. Using technology we can connect food brands, buyers, distributors, and brokers for a fraction of the cost. By helping connect these two vital parts of the food industry, we believe we can build an event stronger food movement.
