The industry values your input

As a PENPals member, you belong to an important community of foodservice professionals who help to shape the future of our industry by participating in new product research studies over the internet.

We all need new products, but the cost of bringing innovative products to the market keeps getting higher. When new products fail, we pay with higher prices.

  • PENPals members help control costs by providing manufacturers with opinions about which products to introduce - and which to pass on.
  • In return, manufacturers support your membership with free awards, contributions and other membership benefits.
  • You are invited to help shape our organization, including web-site content, contributions and the types of awards that may be offered.


In return for your valued input, you earn points redeemable for a variety of gifts on the PENPals awards page.
