NYC Readies for Record-breaking Fancy Food Show

PrintNYC Readies for Record-breaking Fancy Food Show  

The Summer Fancy Food Show, which takes place June 30-July 2 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, is back in New York with its largest show ever.

Now in its 59th year, it is the largest marketplace devoted exclusively to specialty foods and beverages in North America. The exclusive trade event will fill more than 354,000 square feet of exhibit space at the newly renovated Javits Center, including its new hall, Javits Center North. The exhibit halls have been sold out for weeks.

This year’s event features a new look, and marks the official launch of the Specialty Food Association’s new brand to promote and recognize the industry: Specialty Food. Craft. Care. Joy. The association, formerly the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade Inc., owns and operates the Fancy Food Show.

“Interest in specialty food is at an all-time high as consumers seek top-quality foods from purveyors who bring passion and commitment to their offerings,” said Ann Daw, president of the Specialty Food Association. “The people behind the products will be very much in the spotlight at our show.”

For the past two years, the Summer Fancy Food Show was in Washington, D.C., while the Javits Center was undergoing a renovation.

In addition to 1,500 U.S. exhibitors, there will be 34 international pavilions, including first-time pavilions from Bulgaria, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Switzerland. The Caribbean will be well represented with food manufacturers from Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and the Dominican Republic. Italy boasts the largest international presence, followed by Turkey, France and Spain.

U.S. exhibitors will have new opportunities to connect with buyers from countries including China, Mexico, Canada and Brazil, which are participating in a special international buyers program. More than 20,000 buyers are expected to attend.

More information about the Fancy Food Show is available online.

The traditional supermarket channel is maintaining its position as the dominant outlet for grocery purchases, according to the results of Progressive Grocer’s 68th Annual Consumer Expenditures Study. Traditional grocers should be happy that, even amid the continued fragmenting of consumers dollars across mass, drug, dollar and convenience channels, supermarkets are standing their ground. Even as e-tailers build momentum in the fresh arena, grocers – who are increasingly discovering the benefits of click-and-collect as a strategy against all-online competitors – are getting it right.    Read our whole-store, category-by-category breakdown in this fact-packed, 43-page report, with analysis written by PG's seasoned editorial staff, including 17 pages of detailed supermarket sales not included in the print version, with data from Nielsen, IRI and ECRM.
