That is how Nadja Piatka describes her view of cross border trade after more than 20 years of experience doing business in both the United States and Canada. Founder and president of Nadja Foods, Nadja will share her experiences and her inspiring success story as the keynote speaker at Unleashing the Power of the Mega-Region, a must attend event for any business interested in expanding into the CanAm marketplace.

Sponsored by the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce, Unleashing the Power of the Mega-Region takes place Thursday, April 14, 2016 from 1:30 to 5:00 pm at the Seneca Niagara Hotel and Casino in Niagara Falls, NY, registration details here.

Nadja notes that companies in the United States and Canada may see the international border between the two countries as a barrier to doing business when, in fact, in her experience it has been a tremendous opportunity for growth. Nadja took a company that she started in her kitchen in Canada – as a single mother with a $100 investment – and turned it into an international player in the food industry.

Today, Nadja Foods supplies delicious, healthier snacks and desserts to the food service industry, restaurant chains and retail stores under private label and brand products.  Customers have included Subway Restaurants®, McDonald’s®, Sodexo®, Wegmans®, Price Chopper, Tops, Schools, Healthcare and others. With manufacturing facilities located in the US and Canada, Nadja knows a thing or two about using the opportunities within the Mega-Region to benefit her business. Her presentation at Unleashing the Power of the Mega-Region promises to be informative, educational, and especially inspiring.

This is part 1 of a 3-part blog series highlighting Nadja’s story.  Check back next Monday, February 29th for Part 2.
