INTERNATIONAL FORUM

With a focus on international collaboration, this members-only Forum comprised of food and beverage company professionals creates and seizes opportunities for FaB to collaborate with international partners to expand our members’ opportunities for global growth.

Over the past five years, FaB has met with many international delegations that make their way to Wisconsin because of our food and beverage manufacturing status. With our International Forum, we hope to introduce you to these groups and companies in ways that can benefit your company and Wisconsin's food and beverage industry.

Offering valued, purpose-driven engagement – with the FaB’s Director of Industry Growth and Forum Chairs – the role of this Forum is to garner input from, and offer opportunities for its members to:

  • Share best practices and discuss common issues facing their business and our ecosystem
  • Shape FaB’s strategic direction, actions and member offerings 

 

FORUM CHAIRS

The International Forum is supported by FaB's Director of Industry Growth, Brad Rostowfske, and three co-chairs who, with input from Forum participants, guide the Forum's direction and services. This Forum targets member food and beverage company leaders, with a focus on companies exporting and foreign-based companies.
