180,000 products, 45,000 food professionals, 2,550 brands, 55 countries … and one sensational experience. Last week, New York City was awash with the sights, sounds and smells of the Summer Fancy Food Show, America’s largest specialty food and beverage festival.
Artisanship abounds in every nook and cranny. The best talent from across the globe showcases the industry’s latest and greatest tasty tidbits, like this Sin in a Tin Chocolate Pate, 100% Fairtrade Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil or CaberneyZyn wine fruit snack. Food and beverage professionals can pack their tummies with treats and their brains with industry expertise through a series of business education workshops.
But of course, our hearts were captured by this fun snapshot of Videri Chocolate (Clairemont client) rocking out in such an inviting booth. Vibrant, charming and just plain fun, these artists serve as such an inspiration for entrepreneurs, visionaries and culinary experts alike. Their bean-to-bar philosophy yields a distinct, hand-crafted chocolate that is both certainly “fancy” yet profoundly simple.
