Food Industry Slowly Wakes up as Fancy Food Show Resumes in New York

New York…The Fancy Food Show is back this week (June 12-14) at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, albeit smaller and with a somewhat of a different look. Europe, for example, will be represented through “The Charming Taste of Europe” which is co-financed by the European Union. The Fancy Food Show has a significant number of booths that have kosher certification. Major kashrus agencies have booths at the show. Observers noted that many buyers from around the world are still not traveling. Several of the larger European countries have returned with large booths. Many long-time attendees said that despite the availability of such tools as Zoom, the food industry does best with “in the flesh business relationships.” The resurfacing of many food companies at the Fancy Food Show bodes well for the upcoming kosher food show (November 8-9, Meadowlands Convention Center, Secaucus NJ).
