PORTLAND ME — As Kosherfest prepares to celebrate its 25th anniversary on October 29-30 (Meadowlands Exposition Center, Secaucus NJ), at least 50 companies will be making their initial appearance. Several are returning after having exhibited in the past. The new companies hail from 15 states and nine countries, including Canada, Australia, Moldova, Italy, Thailand, China, and Israel, clearly reflecting the growing international presence of kosher certified manufacturers at Kosherfest. The new exhibitors represent almost every category of kosher foods, including meat and poultry, pastry, snack, gluten-free and organic.
The show is nearing a complete sell out, reflecting the role of Kosherfest as the annual “showcase of the kosher food industry.” As in past years, Kosherfest is expected to showcase as many as 500 new kosher items, many for the Passover holiday.
