Local Food Demos

According to Fresh Trends, an annual study published by food industry newspaper, The Packer:

“86 percent of consumers who purchased a product for the first time did so as a result of a free sample.”

After hearing that many of our partners do not have time to sample their products, TLD launched our in-store food demonstration program for locally grown and made foods. Our CEO Tricia Phelps, says, “This TLD service provides local producers a professional option with a passionate local focus.” 

Our local food demo program offers both exclusive and non-exclusive sampling options for food businesses. Each option includes a 3 hour demo with a ServSafe certified staff person, social media and email promotions, distribution of printed materials and more. Non-exclusive demos start at $150 per session with discounts available for bulk contracts. It’s an affordable and effective way to get products introduced to a broad audience.
