Pride of New York Marketplace/Taste NY to Feature Locally Sourced Products at The International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York
“The Pride of New York Marketplace/Taste NY Pavilion brings our attendees face-to-face with family farmers and purveyors who have made New York State one of America's leading suppliers of food and agricultural products. This is a one of a kind opportunity to find resources all under one roof, that addresses guest’s desires for local ingredients and farm-to-table fare,” said Ron Mathews, Industry Vice President for Urban Expositions Foodservice Events, producers of the event. “This area, part of our Food Trends Experience, has been a leading feature of the show in the past years and is definitely a must-attend for attendees to experience wonderful new products from local producers.”
The Pavilion will feature the following companies (as of January 2015).
Pride of NY/ Taste NY will be part of the Food Trends Experience, a tasting event featuring over 100 exhibitors providing direct access to product, flavors and ingredients driving the most recent trends in the market – healthy, organic, sustainable, ethnic, artisanal, and more. In addition to the Marketplace, attendees are invited to the Farm to City Expo taking place on Tuesday, March 10 from 12:00 noon to 2:30 pm. Restaurant owners and foodservice professionals can learn how buying locally can improve their bottom line at this free seminar. Both programs are run by the New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets to help people identify New York-produced food and beverages. All exhibitors in the Marketplace are proud members of the Pride of NY/ Taste NY program.
