JULY 9, 2013

Dear Members,

Hello. We hope you are all doing well at this time. We just wanted to touch base with our members and those who are thinking of becoming members and let you know what has been happening in the past few months.

The Board, along with the office staff, continues to work hard for you to secure the best possible programs with the most savings and rebates that we can get. We are happy to let you know that DarPro (formally Darling) has renewed their contract with us and is offering a bonus to all members who sign a new contract with them. This includes all members who are renewing a contract with them. We are also working on a contract with Rochester Meats, which will serve our members in the Upper New York area from Syracuse to the Buffalo/Rochester area, and anticipate a start date within the next month.

In addition to these benefits, we have introduced new programs with Ken’s, Mrs. T’s Perogies, Carando Gourmet and Barilla Pasta. Again, please ask your salesperson for information.

McCains now offers a Pan Gregorian private label French fry also. This is a flavorlast fry at a reduced price for our members only. If you wish to purchase it, ask your salesperson.

We would also like to remind you that Tyson, Lactalis, Hood and Libbey Glassware are all currently running summer and third quarter specials.

Our charitable foundation has been doing well also and as of the end of the 1st quarter has donated over $15,000.00 to various charities throughout the state.

As many of you know our office has been producing weekly emails for members who have informed us of an email address. For those who have not, please get one to the office as soon as possible. You will not be inundated with emails, only weekly updates and any special circumstances that may arise. This is a great way for us to reach out to our members and keep them up-to-date in a timely fashion.

Again, we hope you are doing well. We wish you a happy and safe summer and continued prosperity.

Respectfully,

Pan Gregorian of Upper New York
Board of Directors and office staff.
