La Tortillería Food Show Boosts Business into the Summer Season

La Tortillería’s Summer Food Show once again proved to be an exceptional experience for buyers and customers who gathered to do business on Thursday, June 8.

In a lively, family-friendly atmosphere, vendors presented an extensive portfolio of food and beverage brands favored by Hispanic consumers.

La Tortillería Food Show attendees and its organizers expressed their satisfaction with the results, noting that the beginning of summer is an auspicious time to hold the event because they can promote the season’s most in-demand products.

“We were fortunate to represent some brands we do marketing work for in the territories of Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, the Carolinas, Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. We came with the team that represents the brands in the stores on a daily basis,” said Manolo Artigas, CEO of Life Marketing.

“This show is organized by La Tortillería in a time of great interest, both for the grocer and the vendors and for which we are very grateful for the attention and the way La Tortillería takes care of us. Every year we see many more people, more business, and that makes us very happy,” said Artigas.
