NEW YORK — The specialty food industry, representing $150 billion in annual sales, gathered in San Francisco for the Winter Fancy Food Show January 19 through 21. Hosted by the Specialty Food Association (SFA), a not-for-profit association with over 3,800 members, the show saw 1,400+ companies exhibiting over 80,000 specialty foods coming together with buyers and distributors from every channel.
“We were honored to present the first large-scale food show of the decade for the industry, showcasing even more SFA member company exhibitors as we maximized the new space at the renovated Moscone Center,” said Phil Kafarakis, SFA President. “The show gave everyone a chance to experience our revitalized brand and the community provided overwhelmingly positive feedback to us. We invite everyone involved in specialty food to join us at our Summer Show in New York, June 28-30, to see the new SFA for themselves.”
Kafarakis also noted, “Beyond the commercial success of our exhibiting companies, we’re very proud of the generosity of our members in giving back to those in need in San Francisco through their product donations to our Foundation and the Food Recovery Network.”
