NJFPA On The Road 

In good times, networking can seem like an "optional" activity. But throughout the pandemic, the theme of relationships came up again and again with our members. That when (not if) an emergency happened, they weren't just searching google for help. Our members could rely on the relationships built through the NJFPA. Relationships with other food processors that are going through the same things. Relationships with vendors they can trust.

NJFPA's popular On the Road (OTR) networking series has always been about making and strengthening connections. NJFPA provides the dinner, drinks, and fabulous locations throughout the Garden State, but it is the members you meet that will pay dividends personally and professionally. 

December On the Road
Thursday, December 8th beginning at 5:30pm
M&T Bank - Cherry Hill, NJ

Each On the Road event offers a perfect combination of networking and industry discussion in a social setting. This winter we will gather together at M&T Bank in Cherry Hill, NJ for dinner and drinks, and an opportunity to talk with a member of the Mid-Atlantic Food Trade Organization's (MAFTO) Board of Directors. Andy Morfopoulos, about their philanthropic work. It is important to recognize the role that each one of us can play in impacting the community around us.
