About FMI:

To many, "FMI" is an annual trade show featuring aisles filled with dazzling exhibits, educational workshops offering the most up-to-date ideas on how to manage businesses efficiently and social events providing the change to make new friends.

But FMI is far more than that.

As the largest trade association of its kind, FMI offers its members a diversity of services that range from helping the small independent operation remain competitive, to assisting wholesalers to develop the latest distribution systems, to identifying consumer attitudes toward food safety, solid waste, new products and the like.
