Thanks for the color/commentary/explanation: Mackey is an enigma & looks like he kinda backed away from the most critical rhetoric later in the day.

Fun anectdotal story. I'm at a corporate food service campus up here in MN this morning - 3 kitchens/exec. chefs & <50 cooks - non-union:). They just received their first ever order from UNFI & the team was breaking down delivery pallets.

It was like X-mas. Lots of, "this is the coolest stuff!" & passing around both raw ingredients & packaged goods.

I'll be interested to see the re-order, how fast these products move & if they resonate with the customer (it isn't grocer/retail - so results won't be perfectly typical).

Best,

K
