The spectacular view of the Hudson River and the southern Manhattan skyline seen from the terrace of an exclusive bar-restaurant in Jersey City, was the setting chosen by Family Food Distributors to celebrate last Saturday, with its vendors and customers, the excellent business relationship that they have had with them for 17 years and announced the re-launch of their private label Mama Tere, in 2020.
Family Food is a specialty food distributor and is participating in the Summer Fancy Food Show that runs from June 23th to 25th at the Javits Convention Center in New York.
“Our presence at the Summer Fancy Food Show is to promote our logistics company, both in South America to the US and in the New York metropolitan area. We specialize in being the favorite distributors of products from Central and South America,”said Andrea Castañeda, director of commercial operations at Family Food Distributors.
The night before the inauguration of the most important specialty food trade show in the US, Family Food announced that next year they are relaunching its private label Mama Tere. “With this brand we compete in several categories and as always, we provide excellent service to our customers and consumers by offering products of very good quality,” said Castañeda.
The executive strategist of Family Food Distributors, Ulda Hurtado, explained the reason for the private label relaunch. “Mama Tere is that special brand that takes us back home, to remember the meals that mom prepared, those delicious recipes. And for the year 2020, Mama Tere’s proposal will be to present the home recipes that our Hispanic families enjoy every day. It will have a fresh, clear image that personifies who Mama Tere is. “
