"Great show, I learned a lot and saved a lot of money," was the buzz from the owners and staff of the almost 150 different distributors of food service disposables and jan/san products who attended Consolidated Paper Company's Eight Business Builder Trade Show held on June 5 and 6.

Helping Distributors Build Their Business was the theme of the show and 64 manufacturers demonstrated environmentally-friendly and LEED compliant products as well as other innovations in foodservice disposables, janitorial products and party supplies.

Trade show attendees, who came from the New York metro area and as far away as Philadelphia, Suffolk County and Montreal, were a good representation of the ethnically diverse multi-state market that Consolidated Paper serves and included distributors to the Latino, Asian and Orthodox foodservice and jan/san markets.
