What makes DFW CPG special?

What makes DFW CPG special?

Dallas-Fort Worth has quickly become home to some of the most successful food and beverage companies in the world, as well as dozens of early- to late-stage CPG brands. Thousands of CPG investors and other CPG professionals call the Metroplex home — and our numbers are increasing every year.

As our industry has grown, so has the need for a CPG community that cares about seeing each other succeed. This is why DFW CPG was founded in 2019 — and why we invite you to join us today!

By combining and sharing our experience and strength, we’ll help you grow through shared knowledge and experience, and through regular events that foster connection and opportunity.

Hima Pal

Founder/CEO Tin Star Foods

DFW CPG is the first CPG focused organization I've joined, since starting Tin Star Foods, that feels like a community that I truly belong to. It has provided endless support not only in professional growth but they've been a network I can lean on when trying to make large business decisions. The founders, Richard and Rick, have always made me feel like they've got my back. Every single time I've asked for help, they've gone above and beyond to help me find the resources needed, locally. It's been crucial in my growth, not only as an emerging brand, but personally as a leader. The friendships made here are something I will be able to take with me wherever I go.

Chi Nguyen

Founder/CEO Purpose Tea

Chi, the Founder of Purpose Purple Tea, started her business because she had a vision for a purpose led, social enterprise that empowered women. Having researched local growers in Africa, and discovering purple tea there, she launched her RTD tea brand in 2018 with a goal to donate 5% of gross profits to support the mission. And, like so many, she found her way and learned the industry without connections or a support network. She says, “when I found DFW CPG, it’s been enormously helpful to me. I have met distributors, suppliers, advisors, and investors through this network – and I hired a Sales Director whom I met at a DFW CPG event.” Today, in addition to growing her business, Chi is an Ambassador for DFW CPG providing helpful insights on how we can help emerging brands, and to help foster and build connections for the local CPG community.

I have been a member of DFW CPG since a bit after it started, and it’s been one of my best experiences in the industry – networking with so many vendors, entrepreneurs, and other professionals. For anyone who is thinking about joining, it’s one of the best things you can do for your brand no matter the size. Since I joined, our company has continued to scale and I plan to continue to be involved in DFW CPG meetings and events.

Founder/CEO All Y’alls Foods

DFW CPG always adds value to my day when I engage with them from a virtual happy hour or speaker, to networking and referrals. I owe a great deal of my brand’s growth over the past 12 months to DFW CPG as they have introduced me to the SKU accelerator program and have connected me with key players that support All Y’alls Foods. I am grateful for DFW CPG and as a CPG founder in the DFW area, it only makes sense to be a part of it.
