Waterville, ME (January 24, 2019) - Maine Crisp Company began distribution with New Hampshire-based distributor, Associated Buyers. Maine Crisp co-founder Karen Getz said, “With a long history in specialty foods and a specific buying criteria, Associated is a great fit for our current customers and those outside our reach”.
The owner and CEO of Associated Buyers, Karta Owens, was enthusiastic about the new brand coming to the Associated family. After product sampling and training of the sales team, the Associated staff took on many of the current Maine Crisp accounts and began offering products to new stores. Steve Getz, Maine Crisp co-founder said, “Associated is well known asthe distributor for new specialty food manufacturers with natural and organic products in New England. They have a strict purchasing criteria and know what they are eating and why. That kind of product knowledge serves their customers well and we are pleased to be working with them as our premiere stocking distributor in New England.”
Maine Crisp will sample and sell at the annual Associated Buyers table-top show located at Thompson’s Point in Portland, Maine later this spring. Vendors have the opportunity to launch new products, write orders, and meet specialty and natural retailer accounts.
