Joliet Chamber Initiates Joliet Region Food & Beverage Association
The Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce & Industry would like to announce that a new sub-group under the chamber umbrella has been created and will host a kick-off event on October 26. The Joliet Region Food and Beverage Association (JRFBA) has been established after interest surfaced about forming a strong and unified voice from the food and beverage industry in the Joliet region due to the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The mission of the JRFBA is to bring leaders from the food and beverage industry together to collaborate, share best practices, advocate for industry needs and priorities, and drive economic growth. The JRFBA believes that a growing and innovative food and beverage industry is vital to a prosperous Joliet region.
Chamber leaders began meeting with the group after the first of the year and have been meeting since then to finalize the overall goals and impact of their vision. The JRFBA will be open to chamber members and non-members just like current sub-group structures. A board of directors will meet on a monthly basis to ensure the mission of the group is being carried out through various programs and events for their members.
