Annual Meat Conference Co-ChairsThe 2013 Annual Meat Conference is underway in Nashville. Welcoming us and getting things started are Conference Co-Chairs, Gary Luechauer, Director of Meat/Seafood and Deli/Bakery Procurement, The Kroger Co. (left) and Matt Monkiewicz, Vice President, Marketing, Kayem Foods, Inc. I spoke with them before we got going to learn more about this event since it is my first time attending.

Gary says this is an educational conference which allows everyone from “rancher to retailer” to get an idea of what’s going on in the industry while sharing ideas. Matt says everyone will have an opportunity to sample new products during a highlight of the conference which is tomorrow’s reception.
