2017 Markon Chef Summit

A Markon Live from the Fields video about the Third Annual Markon Chef Summit.

Markon’s Third Annual Chef Summit was held September 5 through 8 in Monterey, California. Member and operator chefs enjoyed field tours that demonstrated firsthand, where and how the products they order are grown, harvested, packed, and processed.

  • They networked and participated in interactive discussions with chefs from the U.S. and Canada
  • The Supplier “Speed Dating” Expo introduced small, intimate groups of chefs to several of Markon’s supplier-partners and their new, innovative products in a fast-paced meet and greet
  • The event culminated with a Research and Development session where the chefs used their creativity and industry knowledge to create new marketable products
    • During the R&D session, the chefs were broken up into three groups and paired with several of Markon’s trusted partner/suppliers (Taylor Farms, Misionero, and Church Brothers)
    • Previous year’s attendees formulated Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Urban Blend® Salad and our newest item, RSS Aromatic Herbs and Tender Greens, which will launch exclusively through our members in the U.S. and Canada in October

Please feel free to contact you Markon customer service representative or me for more information about the event.
