Kosherfest 2016 Opens Next Tuesday with a World of Innovation and Change

Secaucus NJ - When the 28th edition of Kosherfest opens next Tuesday November 15th for its annual two-day showcase of the best and newest in kosher foods, there will be a great deal of innovation and change at the show. To begin with, there will be more than 90 new exhibitors who will add to the impressive product mix already displayed at the Meadowlands Exposition Center. Of note will be the many new pavilions and booths from overseas, including Spain, Japan, Israel, Canada, the Czech Republic, Korea, South Africa, Bulgaria, Chile, Turkey, the UK, and Mexico. Judging by the response to the New Product Competition, an estimated 300 new items will be introduced at the show. Even before the doors open Tuesday, there will be the Keynote address by Menachem Lubinsky on “Kosher’s Transition to the Digital Age.”   This will be followed by a special breakfast and presentation by the Israel Export Institute, attended by prominent Israeli representatives. Awards will be distributed to the New Product Winners, led by Parvella from Italy that won the Best in Show. Also generating quite a bit of excitement is the New Kosher Masters Competition with the finals taking place at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, the second day of the show. More than 6000 people are expected to be at the show as either exhibitors or visitors in what will be the largest show in Kosherfest's 28-year history.
