What people are saying...
John Nilsson and team delivered 100% of the time! Action Food Sales gave us the support we needed at retail and HQ. They have quality people on the street making things happen as well as being exceptionally well connected at all customers. If you want a broker that delivers on goal, provides in-depth market solutions, and knows how to get things done... my recommendation is Action Food Sales!

I commend you and your team on your "Shameless Persistence" and consistently professional pursuit of this business. Your undying support of Land O'Frost and our corporate goals makes me proud to be your partner and your friend.

Action Food Sales represented Ball Park for 15 years and took Ball Park brand Hot Dogs from a 5 share point to a 30 share point in less than 9 years. Action Food Sales became our largest broker and their desire to sell and obtain authorizations was second to none.
- Greg Sykes, former President - Ball Park Brands
Historical attachment to a marketing area has a great deal of significance to me when acquiring or maintaining brokers. Having many years of perishable sales and marketing expertise is just as important as the technology available to help drive our brands growth. As one who spent a great deal of my own career in the Carolinas and the Southeast, I can attest that Action has a great blend of experienced people as well as youthful energy and current expertise to get the job done in the interests of both the retailer and the manufacturer.

Our partnership with Action Foods Sales, which began over a decade ago, has been an important factor in the growth and success of Carolina Pride Foods over this time period. This has come about through the driven desire to succeed from John Nilsson and his front line sales team. Of equal importance has been the highly competent and effective supporting staff at Action that works behind the scenes to make the administrative aspect of our business run smoothly. We look forward to the many successes that we have yet to accomplish!
