IFT First served as an ideal platform for St. Charles Trading to foster connections and collaborations within the industry.

Throughout the four days that we attended IFT First, we never slowed down our mission to spreading company awareness. Our company’s team of experts engaged with attendees, sharing knowledge, insights, and solutions that empowered businesses to reach new heights. Moreover, attendees were able to witness our spice wall, providing a small preview of our finely-sourced ingredients.

Furthermore, we showcased Garlic Salt at our booth for attendees to enjoy and get a taste of what we offer. Garlic salt is a great additive for any recipe or dish!
