The culinary-leading, gracious southern city of Charleston, South Carolina, was the site of the 2014 Shopping for Health conference, held at the historic Francis Marion Hotel April 6 – 9. Grocery store dietitians from major chains around the country were guests of Shopping for Health for a meeting filled with nutrition news and updates, cooking demonstrations, menu presentations and lots of delicious food!

The retail dietitians were joined by a select group of food industry leaders, who enjoyed this unique opportunity to interact with those who work with grocery shoppers at the point of purchase.

Testimonials

From Our Retail Dietitian Guests:

Shopping for Health is my favorite conference and I’m grateful for the opportunity to attend!! The smaller meeting format allows for great networking, conversations and time with sponsors and other supermarket RDs. I learn a lot of valuable information about the industry in a short amount of time.

I really like the fact that this is a smaller group and feel that it is easier to talk with sponsors and attendees. Exceptionally well run.

This was my first Shopping for Health conference. It was wonderful and came highly recommended to me! I enjoyed the relaxed and fun atmosphere. What I learned was great and inspiring! YES, I would make a special effort to attend again!

Shopping for Health is my all-time favorite conference. The information provided is outstanding, the networking and contacts are great and it is exceptionally well run. Always a very worthwhile event!

This was the best conference I have ever been to. The information was so relevant to my job. I will use information from every session; in fact I’ve already used a lot of it. It was also the best  I have been to from a networking standpoint. The group size was perfect. I felt like I was able to spend a good amount of time and get to know every person there.

From Past Sponsors:

Shopping for Health is so beneficial for us. Since SFH is a smaller group, it gives us access on a more targeted level & with fewer attendees it allows us to form relationships that might not be possible at bigger events.

This conference is outstanding for us because it is so focused on the needs of retail RDs. Other meetings are too big and too broad.
