The 42nd Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco (January 22-24, 2017) was another great event this year, with a record number of attendees. Featuring the hottest new products, brands, and trends from over 30 countries and 1,400 exhibitors, over 80,000 specialty food and beverage items showcased at the main event didn’t disappoint.
More than ever, we’re seeing a blend of “great tasting” plus “more healthful and nutritionally conscious” products. Consumers are demanding cleaner and more minimally processed food and beverages, and brands are bringing them to market quicker than ever.
After walking 218,000 square feet of exhibit space over three days and 20 hours, and sampling something from just about every booth, we’ve curated a list of the most interesting new products, brands, and packaging and want to share them with you!
