North Carolina Beer And Wine Distributor Seeks To Spread Message Of Stewardship At Annual Banquet

 

RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 4, 2016 – Mims Distributing Company, a leading North Carolina wholesale beverage distributor, is partnering with Triangle Delta Waterfowl (TDW) for its 5th Annual Banquet on Friday, Feb. 19 at the Kerr Scott Building on the North Carolina State Fairgrounds. Doors for the event open at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m.

 

For more than 50 years, Mims Distributing has maintained a commitment to develop partnerships with groups throughout the state dedicated to the conservation of natural habitats and stewardship of one of the world’s most precious resources – water. Since breweries rely on local water sources for production, Mims Distributing works with these groups to emphasize clean, safe waterways.

 

The company is also committed to sustainability in its everyday operation. In 2011, Mims Distributing moved to a newly renovated facility, which includes one of the largest private solar rooftops in Wake County and bio-retention ponds to minimize on-site water consumption.

 

The TDW Annual Banquet allows Mims Distributing to raise conservation awareness and support environmental advocacy within the greater Triangle community. Twenty-five percent of all profits raised at the banquet directly supports active duty, military veteran and youth hunting opportunities in North Carolina.
