ADR at F&B MB Holiday Reception
A.D. Rutherford International Inc. was fortunate enough to have been invited as a vendor to the Food & Beverage Manitoba Holiday Reception hosted on December 6th.
We attended the reception, greatly anticipating that we would get a chance to network with businesses in the food and agricultural industry, and were surprised to find that we had so much more in common with the organizations attending than we would have realized. We were able to learn more about the businesses that contribute to Manitoba's local food industry, but above all else, we were able to find ways in which we could help these businesses thrive.
Some of the organizations in attendence included BeeMaid, Northern Goose, Bothwell Cheese, and various other fantastic vendors who contributed samples to the reception's huge buffet line. We were delighted to see chef demonstrations of great dishes prepared live, and learned about the organizations that support the Manitoba food industry in indirect ways, such as Boisco Enterprise who manufactures safe and industrial flooring solutions, and the Red River College's Culinary Research & Innovation program which strives to develop new ways to repurpose food products, among other services to the food industry.
Below is a selection of some of our favorite dishes we sampled at the reception:

And not to mention our own eye-catching display, which was busy with curious guests as we got to know more about the organizations present:
It was very exciting to see our name up on the guest list displayed around the room!
By the end of the night, our team was full of great food and a newfound appreciation for our fellow local businesses. We would highly recommend checking out Food & Beverage Manitoba and seeing what the assocation can offer to businesses operating in Manitoba. It was a great experience and we look forward to doing it again next year!
