What do you see here?



On the left you have a Hashtag…..that new age symbol made popular by Twitter, and everywhere on social media.

On the right?  A tallymark.  Used for counting.  The tallymark above represents 5.

LM Foods, had the pleasure of sponsoring and attending the 15th annual Surimi Industry Forum on May 5th in Astoria Oregon.  It’s always good to get together with your industry manufacturers, suppliers and researchers to talk about the pressing issues of your industry.

  1. Premium quality.

How many times have you been to a conference, you get energized throughout the day, only to fall back into the whirlwind of your day job?  All of us do it.  And therein lies the challenge for future growth and making the conference more than just a couple pieces of paper with Hashtags.  Or Tallymarks.
