Have you ever been surrounded by over 180,000 foods in a single location? Well, we certainly have! This past June, the Crispy Green team had the pleasure of participating in the 61st annual Summer Fancy Food Show, hosted by the Specialty Food Association at the Javits Center in New York City. Known for being the East coast’s largest specialty food and beverage exposition, the Summer Fancy Food Show is considered the epicenter for retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors from all over the world. Crispy Green has had the opportunity to exhibit at this spectacular show for the past several years, and this year’s Summer Fancy Food Show was nothing short of awesome!
Exhibiting at the Summer Fancy Food Show
Our team had a blast chatting with those who came by our booth to try our Crispy Fruit – 100% pure fruit snacks, with only one single ingredient: fruit! We received lots of interest in our beautiful new 6-pack standup bag, which will allow for easier merchandising for retailers who sell our snacks. Our Crispy Pineapple and Crispy Tangerine were definitely both big hits as well; everyone loved their unique textures and sweet, natural flavor. Surely, having all seven flavors to sample at the Summer Fancy Food Show meant that there was something there for everyone to enjoy! We were also excited to show off our new tradeshow banners, which gave our booth an eye-catching pop of color.
Just from walking around the Summer Fancy Food Show, we saw tons of new food items, products, and trends that are springing into the specialty food limelight this year. These days, just about anything from Camel’s milk to edible roses goes! Many manufacturers in the industry are showcasing products that are gluten free, allergen free, dairy free, all natural and Non-GMO Project verified. We’re happy to say that our Crispy Fruit is a leading snack that has all of these key benefits, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for ourselves and for our competitors. Bring on the challenges!
Overall, we enjoyed yet another great Summer Fancy Food Show this year, and we are so excited to see all of the opportunities we charted come to fruition! A special thank you to all who visited us at our booth and tried our Crispy Fruit snacks… we look forward to seeing you again at next year’s Summer Fancy Food Show!
