About This Webinar

Brian Todd of the Food Institute will look at the trends among the transactions tallied by the association in 2018, driven largely by retailers, which bounced back from a slow year in 2017. He will determine what the hotspots are and what might be coming down the road.

David Schoeder of The Food Partners will take a look at out how the supermarket landscape is changing as result of all of this activity and what the future may bring for food retailers over the next year.

Karen Martin of BMO Capital Markets will discuss the current M&A market conditions for warehouses and other food industry companies, reflecting on recent transactions, as well as the status of the equity and debt markets, and other industry conditions.
