R3 Reliable Redistribution Resource® recently joined the International Foodservice Distributors Association (IFDA) as an IFDA Partner. R3® is a leading North American redistributor of disposable operating products and related services to distributors in foodservice and other industries.
“We welcome R3®’s participation in the IFDA Partners Program,” said IFDA president and CEO Mark Allen. “As an IFDA Partner, R3® will participate in the IFDA Partners Executive Forum, which is a focused opportunity for top-to-top strategic discussions with some of the industry’s leading foodservice distributors.”
While most IFDA Partners are foodservice manufacturers, the IFDA Partners Executive Forum is also an appropriate setting for discussions between redistributors and their distributor customers.
“We are very excited to become a member of IFDA,” said R3® President Earl Engleman. “IFDA provides collaborative opportunities to share our best practices with many of our customers on a variety of foodservice distribution topics.”
