The “Taste NY Pavilion” has been expanded at the 2016 Specialty Food Association’s Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City.
This is the fourth year Taste NY has participated in the food show. This year, more than 50 New York state food and beverage companies will sample products in the Pavilion, while some 275 additional New York state companies will exhibit at this year’s overall show.
Now in its 62nd year, the Summer Fancy Food Show is the largest specialty food trade event in North America and runs from June 26 - 28 at Javits Center.
“The Summer Fancy Food Show, which brings together thousands of top industry professionals from all across the globe, is a tremendous opportunity to showcase some of New York’s finest agricultural products," said Agriculture and Markets Commissioner Richard Ball.
“By meeting in the world’s largest marketplace under the Taste NY Pavilion, our producers have the chance to connect to new buyers and distributors and bring attention to the best and newest innovations in New York’s specialty and gourmet foods and beverages.”
This three day, industry-only event draws more than 46,000 industry professionals.
It brings together specialty food and beverage producers from around the world with the goal of linking them to a network of distributers and buyers from independent gourmet shops, high-end multiple location retailers, major department stores and specialty merchandisers looking for the very best and newest innovations in specialty and gourmet foods and beverages.
