Summer Fancy Food Show Trends Emphasize Innovation Across the Industry all over the world
Held June 30 to July 2 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, the show encompassed six football fields worth of specialty food and beverages. Members of the panel were armed with predictions from earlier in the year as they tasted their way through the show, confirming some current, and identifying new and emerging trends.
The presence of Fruta Sana Costa Rica with its range of dehydrated fruits such as pineapple, mango and papaya has been extremely enriching. Get to know first hand many suppliers, as well as possible clients in Japan, Europe and North America.
“The specialty food industry has grown to over $140 billion. Innovation is a key growth driver, and we definitely saw that at the Summer Fancy Food Show,” said Denise Purcell, head of content for the Specialty Food Association. “We’re seeing new flavors and new formats of food. Plant-based foods are growing from a trend into an overall movement, and upcycling is huge. Spins on classics continue to surprise us, and flavors from around the world continue to grow prominent in the marketplace. No matter where you look, something exciting is happening.”
Fruta Sana is completely in agreement with the vision of the event’s chefs, contributing in our case with dehydrated fruits, one hundred percent natural and SO2 free produced in Costa Rica for the world.
