Combined Membership: Companies that Manufacture AND Supply
For an additional $1,000 per year, those companies that manufacture AND supply are eligible for a “Combined Membership” with member benefits in the category in which they do not pay full dues. Such benefits include a separate listing in the ADS Directory, the option of purchasing a separate link on the ADS Web site, company participation at ADS meetings and in Association activities and committees from the second category.
Applies to companies that are engaged in the manufacturing of dressing and sauce products and in supplying products or services to other dressings and sauces manufacturers.
Dues paid by companies that provide both aspects of manufacturing and supplying must pay dues in the membership category in which their dues would be highest (as determined by the Manufacturer and Supplier Dues Schedules). This membership entitles the member to all rights and privileges of the membership category in which it pays dues.
