Olive Crest Food Industry Round Table (FIRT)

Led by Mike Mortensen, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Smart & Final, the Olive Crest Food Industry Round Table (FIRT) is designed to provide a coordinated effort that advances the mission of Olive Crest while facilitating growth and interaction between retailers and vendors in a small environment. As a sponsor of Olive Crest, you automatically become an exclusive member of The Food Industry Round Table (FIRT). Led by Mike Mortensen, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Smart & Final, FIRT meetings are held only three times per year. As seen in the chart below, we have key Southern California retailers involved.
