IFDA Partners Program

Build business, improve profitability, and engage with leading companies in foodservice.

The IFDA Partners Program provides an important opportunity for foodservice manufacturer companies (traditionally over $100M in foodservice sales) to interact with IFDA’s distributor membership.  In addition to the “basic” Partners Program, IFDA’s MVP program provides leading supplier companies with enhanced recognition and the opportunity to support important IFDA distributor programs throughout the year. The MVP Partners Program provides three levels of participation including Platinum, Gold, and Silver.

In addition to participation in the IFDA Partners Executive Forum, foodservice manufacturers also participate in other IFDA programs including the IFDA Solutions Conference, the IFDA SMart Conference, and the IFDA National Championship.
