I have been working with B&A for the last couple of years and they always delivered an "Al Dente" service; never underperformed on their commitment. B&A and each person working at B&A, must be recognized for their dedication to the Industry and their customers.

Effectively and with great Commitment for Success. Truly a Win-Win Partnership. We are now looking forward to continue the success with B&A into other
Territories beyond Florida. “
For all of you manufacturers who are contemplating hiring B&A here is my perspective, Tim Young, Eastern USA Zone Manager, Diamond Crystal Sales, LLC. B&A was up first year 9%, second up 14%. It's all about the facts and those numbers say it all. Our previous broker never gave us even close to those results!! You know why?? Because every sales call and Foodshow B&A takes on the philosophy of an old saying, "A sales Presentation without a Demonstration, is only a Conversation"! Scott, Andy and TEAM truly embrace the sales approach of Profiling the account, Targeting the best Opportunities and CONVERTING THE SALES!

My broker network in Florida is amazing! They are knowledgable and professional. I am completely confident knowing that they are representing me in the market. They are eager to learn about specialty cheeses and are certainly known as the "cheese brokers" in Florida. I recently was so pleased to make the switch when they moved into the Georgia market. I know that together we will continue to grow our business both in Florida and Georgia.

Campofrio Food Group - America
I had been working with a large, multi-state, regional brokerage company for over a decade, and was not looking to make a broker change at this time. After talking to Scott t length about his people and their go-to-market strategy, I began questioning exactly what I was getting from my current broker. It soon became apparent to me that my current broker seemed to be working harder for their larger vendors, and my business was too small to be appropriately appreciated I gave them notice and made the change to B&A.
In the first three months with B&A, I went on more sales calls, made more presentations with new distributors, and more district meetings, and developed stronger relationships with current distributor management that I had the entire time I was with my previous broker. Scott's people were eager to learn the product line, consistently communicated questions on product knowledge, company policies, QA, Shipping, Ordering, etc. and were completely engaged with my product line from day one.
After the first 9 months with B&A the results were obvious to everyone at my company, and now is hels up as an example for other regional's in my company to mirror and seek out true broker partners. The proffesionalism, commitment, and communication from B&A is unparalleled. They gave me true confidence that I am being well represented in the market. b&A treats my business as their own, and are personally vested in the growth of my company. I very much appreciate our relationship both professionally and personally, and I am proud to have them represent my company.
On behalf of the Atalanta Corporation, I am pleased to be associated with such a dedicated, hard working organization. The attention to detail and follow through at both the account and store level is some of the best in the industry. It is rare to find the combination of top notch administration, product knowledge, merchandising, and follow-up in the Cheese and Specialty business. The most important part is that principal management is totally engaged in the day to day process.
I am proud to be represented by B&A Food Brokers.
Norseland Inc's relationship with B&A has been far more than the traditional Broker/Principal relationship. Since the inception of our partnership in 2000, exceeding sales goals and market share growth for all our brands is just the tip of our relationship.
While our representation with B&A has traditional geographic areas, our relationship spans much further. B&A has not only excelled in representing Norseland, but they have also helped us expand our position in the market place by advising on business opportunities and presenting new business opportunities that outstretch the normal broker representation agreement.
I value and trust their insight and professionalism in the industry we compete in today. I am proud to call Andy, Ben and Kevin, my business partners as well as friends, a truly unique combination.
