Thriving in the New Normal

This year, ADS will turn 95!

In 1926, mayonnaise manufacturers saw the need to work together as a group to resolve common problems within the growing mayonnaise industry.  As a result, the forerunner to ADS was formed, i.e., the “Mayonnaise Products Manufacturers Association.”  As the industry evolved due to creativity and flexibility, so too did ADS.  Almost a century later, the need to work together to solve common problems is more important than ever during these challenging times.

pic33The focus of ADS’ Annual Meetings has always been to engage leaders in the dressing and sauce industry and to provide a forum to network, to collaborate and to learn from each other.  To continue to meet these needs in 2021, like we did in 1926, ADS will be hosting its Annual Meeting virtually, May 4 and 5.

This year’s information-packed agenda will provide know-how and solutions for industry leaders from the Speed of Trust to Sustainability for Manufacturers to Planning for Post-Pandemic Business.  The speakers also will facilitate collaborative interactions with small group discussions throughout their presentations.

New this year, the Annual Meeting will offer Roundtable Collaborations.  Select the topic of most interest to you and your business and participate in a moderated session to learn from each other while also networking.

There will also be networking breakouts throughout the meeting.  As we did in 2020 for the Virtual Technical Meeting, we will divide participants into Zoom rooms so pic51you can have one-on-one interactions with a smaller group.

Note:  Meeting registration will proceed as it has in the past through the ADS website.  Due to the virtual nature of this meeting, all registrants’ names will be uploaded to the virtual platform where you can manage your schedule.  The platform will also house the links to sessions and networking breaks (now extended to 30 minutes) on the days of the event.  Sponsors will also be listed!  The virtual platform will serve as your meeting itinerary planner and will be available approximately 2 weeks before the meeting starts.
