You're Invited: Celebrating One Year of re:COGs and MFD's New Los Angeles HQ Office Warming Party

Join us as we mark a significant milestone in our journey - the first anniversary of the re:COGs Podcast and the grand opening of Manufactured's new office headquarters in Los Angeles. This dual celebration is not just a reflection of our growth but a testament to the vibrant community we've built together.

A Year of re:COGs: Reflecting on Our Journey
It's been an incredible year since we launched the re:COGs Podcast, diving deep into the essentials of inventory supply chain management and operations for consumer brand owners. With insightful conversations led by our host, Mike Gelb, and featuring industry experts across various sectors, we've explored sustainable manufacturing, inventory financing, and much more. Our community of listeners and contributors has grown, sharing valuable perspectives and fostering a space for innovation and collaboration.

The New Chapter: MFD's Los Angeles HQ
As we celebrate this milestone, we're also thrilled to open the doors to our new office headquarters in Los Angeles. This new space symbolizes our commitment to supporting consumer brands at every stage of their journey and our dedication to fostering a collaborative environment for our team and the broader re:COGs community.

Join the Celebration
Whether you've been with us since the beginning or are new to the re:COGs community, we invite you to join us in celebrating these significant achievements. Let's toast to the past year's successes and look forward to the exciting opportunities ahead.
We can't wait to celebrate with you!

If you’re not in LA, or are unable to join us for this special event, that’s OK, we have more events coming up soon. Be sure to sign up for event notifications!

Sincerely,
The re:COGs & Manufactured Team

Live Webinar

📆 Thursday, March 7th
⏰ 2pm EST / 11am PST

Join us for an engaging panel discussion designed for innovators in the natural food space looking to transition from direct-to-consumer (DTC) success to the competitive shelves of brick-and-mortar retail. This lead-in to Expo West will provide a platform for thought leaders to share their insights on overcoming the barriers to entry when going from online to the aisle.

Our panel of experts will delve into the unique challenges that emerging natural food brands face, examining common hurdles such as steep slotting fees and other barriers that often impede entry into retail. We'll dissect strategies for overcoming these obstacles, focusing on achieving the ideal price points and margins essential for retail acceptance.

As consumer demand for healthier ingredients surges and food regulations evolve, we'll explore the impact on the cost of goods sold (COGS) and how reformulation and premium ingredients can affect pricing strategies and profitability. The discussion will highlight the importance of reducing COGs without compromising quality, and how leveraging inventory success platforms can aid in sourcing cost-effective solutions and provide flexible financing to manage the financial demands of marketing, merchandising, and slotting fees.

Attendees will leave with actionable insights on how to satisfy safety regulations, retail requirements, and consumer expectations, ensuring their brand not only enters the retail market but thrives in it.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn from the experts how to scale your brand effectively, navigate the complexities of the food industry, and maintain profitability in the face of changing regulations and consumer trends.
