Executives from Coborn’s, KeHe Distributors, Lazy Acres and Northgate Gonzalez Market will be among the speakers at a half-day education and networking summit sponsored by SN and designed to drive health and wellness in supermarkets.
The SN Health & Wellness Summit is scheduled for Thursday, March 5, during Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, Calif.
Scheduled speakers include Rhonda Siltman, category manager for natural and organics, at Coborn’s; Scott Silverman, VP, growth solutions, for KeHe; Vic Sohagi, president of Lazy Acres Market; and Alfonso Cano, produce director for Northgate Gonzalez.
Other participants will include Eric Pierce, director of strategy and insights, for NEXT at New Hope Natural Media, Boulder, Colo.; Annie Geile, director of client management for LabelINSIGHT; and Phil Lempert, the Supermarket Guru and SN contributing editor, with additional speakers to be announced later.
