MICHIGAN FOOD AND BEVERAGE ASSOCIATION MEMBERSHIP UP 52.9 PERCENT

 DETROIT, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Michigan Food and Beverage Association added more than 900 members last year, making it the largest food and beverage trade association in the state. "We have 2,600 members, up from 1,700, who employ more than 18,000 people," said MFBA President Ed Deeb.
 The organization began in 1987 with 80 members. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors representing small grocers, local supermarket chains, convenience stores, restaurants, fast-food establishment, food and beverage wholesalers, manufacturers, brokers and related distributors throughout Michigan.
 In addition to providing members with better communications among grocers, restaurants and taverns, the association provides insurance programs and acts as the industry information clearing house.
 "MFBA serves as a unified voice for the industry," Deeb said. "And we help small businesses resolve government and community concerns. We are not afraid to get involved to fight for due process, justice and fair play."
