On-Course Product Sample Stations Return for the Charity Golf Classic!

We have just secured our product sampling stations with some of our Supplier Partners! During the afternoon, it is important to keep hydrated and fed while playing golf in the sun, networking, and acquiring new potential business leads. These product sampling stations help bring additional exposure to your company's brand and products. 

We would like to thank Parmalat & Canada Bread for joining forces and returning with their Grilled Cheese Station, Gambles Produce for returning with their Fresh Fruit Station, Sleeman Breweries for returning with their Beer Sampling Station and ESKA Water for coming in this year with their Water Station. 

If your company would like to feature an on-course product sampling station, please email matthew@distributioncanada.ca

Thank you for your commitment to DCI and the independent grocers.
