It’s 2023, and the International Fresh Produce Association’s Foodservice Conference is back. Our team at Gills Onions is excited to be attending. Our industry has seen unprecedented changes and faced many unforeseen challenges over the past several years. There’s no better way to celebrate how far we’ve come than IFPA Foodservice Conference. 

This year’s event will take place July 27–28, 2023, in Monterey, California. At the conference, you’ll find attendees from every corner of our industry, including operators, distributors, and retail foodservice buyers; grower-shippers and processors (like Gills Onions); and even business solutions providers. It gives everyone a chance to connect, learn about innovations, and of course, do business. 

Our Gills Onions team is excited to be back again at IFPA Foodservice Conference doing what we do best: sharing the good news of fresh fruits and vegetables. We love the chance to show why we are the best at what we do and how we lead in sustainability, food safety, value-add, and flavor. We believe in doing business the old-fashioned way – with a handshake and a face-to-face conversation, building relationships that last. 

We’re Proud to Stand With Our Partners

We’re proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with our partners in foodservice. It’s no secret that pandemic and post-pandemic has been difficult, and Gills Onions wasn’t immune. Restaurants closed and reopened and closed again. New mandates and restrictions forced us to get creative and adapt how we do business. Businesses across our industry had to make difficult decisions to reduce staff, and at times, it seemed like things would never return to “normal.” 

With a continued national labor shortage, reducing costs and labor in the kitchen are more important than ever. At Gills Onions, we are proud to offer a value-added product that saves kitchens time and money on labor and transportation costs. And, onions are one of the most commonly used products across foodservice. (It makes sense. They’re delicious and versatile.) 

IFPA Foodservice Conference is the perfect time to stand together and share an optimistic vision of the future. We look forward to seeing you there.
