The event, which focused on the theme of ‘Better Together’, brought together teams from SPAR Partners including Russia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Mongolia. Present were chefs, marketing managers, bakery specialists and preferred suppliers.
The full programme included presentations from SPAR Partners, SPAR International representatives and suppliers. There were also masterclass training sessions on food technologies, during which recipes from various national cuisines were shared and trialed.
Delegates were given the opportunity to visit SPAR stores and a modern production facility which forms part of SPAR Georgia’s Food-to-Go solution. All attendees appreciated the opportunity to learn more about food production and to visit the SPAR stores.
During several practical masterclass sessions, delegates discovered the secrets of Georgian and Azerbaijani cooking and baking, including Khachapuri and Tandoori breads, salads, vegetable, meat and poultry dishes, burgers, baklava pastry and more, some of which the partners indicated could work in their own Food-to-Go ranges.
SPAR Partners share common brand values and pool resources for mutual benefit; a great advantage of being a member of this global organisation. The Food-to-Go Conference in Tbilisi was a great example of partner cooperation and knowledge sharing – a true reflection of the SPAR strategy, ‘Better Together’.
