The council will honor Eva Kohn, EVP and chief revenue officer of CBA Industries, with the Max Stone Trade Relations Award during the NJFC 2019 Trade Relations Conference on Wednesday, May 22, at Harrah’s Resort & Casino in Atlantic City. The Max Stone Award is named in honor of the longtime trade relations leader for Best Foods CPC in recognition of his accomplished career in trade relations in New Jersey. The event draws hundreds of food industry executives and their supplier partners to discuss and provide insight into trade trends and collaborations.

Kohn currently serves on the NJFC executive committee and is a leader at CBA Industries, a pre-eminent distributor of advertising circulars in the New York and New Jersey, area with a focus on bringing consultative solutions to the company’s largest clients. She is a sales leader, lending her expertise and business acumen across the organization to drive profitable results.

NJFC President Linda Doherty stated, “Eva Kohn represents strong leadership in trade relations. Her partnership with the Food Council and the insights she provides as a member of the NJFC Executive Committee are invaluable to the advancement of our mission and the food industry. This recognition represents our appreciation of her outstanding ability to foster trade partnerships as we face new challenges and disruptions in our industry.”

The Best Chef Cook-Off Challenge will take place once again this year. The cook-off provides an opportunity for New Jersey retail food industry chefs to showcase their culinary skills and compete for NJFC’s highly-coveted cooking award. The competition will be held in the Viking Kitchen and Cooking School at Harrah’s Resort.
The conference will conclude with a Curtain Closer golf event at Galloway National Golf Club on Thursday, May 23, at 9 a.m. in Galloway, New Jersey.
