North America’s largest specialty food and beverage event, the Summer Fancy Food Show, is underway at New York’s Javits Centre, running until June 28.
Attendees can discover 180,000 products including confections, cheese, coffee, snacks, spices, ethnic, natural, organic and more, as well as connect with 2,400 exhibitors from 50 countries and regions.
Ahead of the event, the Specialty Food Association (SFA) has been actively engaging with U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the import community by participating on stakeholder panels at public meetings on implementation of import safety programs.
SFA has been addressing the complexity of the regulations and their effect on small importers and their foreign suppliers. As Shawn McBride, chair of SFA and vice president of Foah International, stated, “The uncertainty in these regulations and their implementation put small food companies at a disadvantage and—even more importantly—at risk.”
