Our Wilders' ladies had a great opportunity through Got To Be NC to participate in the 2023 Flavors of the Carolinas Show in Concord, NC at the end of February!
Jaclyn, Founder, and Danielle, Brand & Operations Manager, were in attendance with over 150 other exhibitors from across the state showcasing Wilders Wagyu Beef & Berkshire Pork. Each exhibitor had the chance to mingle and connect with retailers, distributors and restaurants from the Southeast.
Over 500 attendees worked their way through the exhibitor hall over the course of five hours. This was an invitation-only event, and allowed attendees to sample locally grown and made products from North Carolina. It was also a chance for exhibitors to educate retailers and restaurants on their products and discuss wholesale pricing.
Jaclyn and Danielle had a packed day with a lot of interaction, being the only exhibitor to showcase locally raised 100% fullblood Wagyu beef! With the help of Wilders' favorite caterer, J-Top's BBQ Shop, the ladies were able to serve attendees samples of Wilders Wagyu teriyaki meatballs, Wilders Wagyu steak crostinis with goat cheese and chimichurri, and Wilders Berkshire pork chili!
We are grateful for the connections that were made at this event between the Wilders team and other local producers and retailers and food industry professionals. We are already counting down the days until the next Flavors of the Carolinas Show in 2024!
