Mary Krier

Good morning and welcome to Flowers Foods’ Analyst Day. We appreciate all of you who are here with us today in Philadelphia and all of you who are listening by webcast. My name is Mary Krier and I am Vice President of Communications for Flowers Foods. Usually Marta Jones Turner, our Executive Vice President of Corporate Relations opens our analyst events, but unfortunately Marta could not be with us this morning. We do have a number of Flowers’ operations people here and you'll be hearing from key members of our executive team. Before we begin I must remind you that our discussion reflects what we know about the business today, but that may differ in the future. As you can see from our agenda, the focus of our presentation this morning is Flowers’ growth strategy. Now it's my pleasure to introduce George E. Deese, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Flowers Foods.

George E. Deese

Thank you, Mary and good morning to each of you and good morning and thank you those on the way up who have joined us as well this morning. We think today will be an exciting day, what you will hear today is all about driving growth for the future and you will hear from Allen Shiver and his operating group when he really talks about all the growth information and then supply chain from Mike Beaty and of course Steve Kinsey will follow up with a financial report which supports that growth.
