Past SENPA President, John Kacsan – Seidman Food Brokerage

We have seen an increase in snack items sought after from the grocery stores, we service and although the staples like rice, bread and meats are in high demand we have seen a increase in ethnic foods being purchased.  We have not seen any decline in the sales at the health food store level and quite the opposite the stores we service seem to be doing well stocking items specifically sought after from protein powders, kombucha drinks and especially supplements.  I believe we all need to remain positive, proactive and focused as an industry to move through the crisis we are in.
