We’re FaB, and we know this industry well.
We’re FaB Wisconsin, a cross-industry food and beverage membership organization. Our member employers embody Wisconsin’s industry strength – big and small, local and global, from nutrient dense to decadence – all with incredible capacity for growth and leadership. Mostly clustered in Wisconsin, we offer interwoven industry experience, know-how, and the spirit of Wisconsin’s thriving food and beverage scene.
Our network is wide and diverse. And with over ten years in the books as an organization, we’re ready and able to help your food and beverage business succeed and grow:
Food and beverage becomes a priority
The Milwaukee 7, the region’s cooperative economic development organization, identifies food and beverage manufacturing as a targeted industry — or “cluster” — for regional economic growth.
The network gets the go-ahead
The first iteration of our Leadership Council, called the Milwaukee 7 Food & Beverage Advisory Council and consisting of food and beverage company owners, presidents, CEOs and stakeholders, hosts an exclusive gathering in the caves of Miller Coors. They give the green light on forming a food and beverage business network to share their vision for the industry and the region.
FaB Milwaukee is born
With a goal of making the Milwaukee region the best place to locate and run a food and beverage business, FaB Milwaukee is established.
FaB goes statewide
Our name is changed to FaB Wisconsin to encompass the strength of our industry across the state and expand our reach.
FaB celebrates 10 years
A decade of supporting our members and making Wisconsin a networked place to grow a food and beverage business and industry career is commemorated.
