"Food Matters Live was a fantastic opportunity for us to meet prospective buyers and other partners that could potentially accelerate our business. Especially as we are a young challenger brand, the exposure that we got to other key players in the food industry was incredible. I cannot recommend Food Matters Live highly enough!"
