Our interns and co-ops hit the streets this week to participate in a Marketing Innovation exercise. They visited stores and restaurants looking for the very latest culinary trends. The teams developed three new ideas for several brands in our portfolio, focusing on health and wellness. Our Marketing experts were extremely impressed with the results of this ideation exercise. Great job!
