Susan Fellows is a Manager at Victoria Amory. She regularly writes about speciality food and she produced this info-graphic about the ‘Summer Fancy Food Show’ that recently took place in New York. She recently covered this event for us.
—————————————- The Fancy Food Show began in 1955 and it is North America’s largest speciality food and beverage marketplace with over 40,000 attendees. Every year, the event features over 260,000 speciality food and beverage products and is an amazing venue for anyone involved in the speciality food industry.
The growth in the speciality food sector has increased the popularity of this event in recent years. From 2010-2012 the speciality food sector saw growth of 22.1% and it continues to grow year on year.
At last year’s show gluten-free products topped new product innovations and dollars spent. Many food producers are now trying to appeal to the gluten-free market. Other popular trends include spirits in food and hand-held breakfast.
“There were some amazing products featured in the sofi awards last year and I selected some of my favorite 2014 & 2015 winners in the info-graphic. The awards honor outstanding speciality foods in the industry.” Susan Fellows
