At the Show: Diversity Food Companies Featured at Winter Fancy Food Show

San Francisco (Jan. 17, 2010) – Samosas, dark chocolate, black garlic and barbecue sauce are among the hundreds of specialty foods from minority-owned businesses that will be featured at the 35th Winter Fancy Food Show. The event, the largest marketplace for specialty foods and beverages on the West Coast, is Jan. 17 – 19, 2010, at the Moscone Center here.

Among the 1,300 exhibitors are women-owned companies and businesses owned by African American, Asian, Caribbean, Hispanic and Middle Eastern entrepreneurs and food innovators. These companies offer foods that tap into growing interest in international flavors, spices, and products that are closely associated with a supplier’s personal heritage.

The minority-owned exhibitors are part of the Diversity Program offered by the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade, Inc., a not-for-profit trade association and owner/producer of the Fancy Food Show. Established in 2002, the program encourages and supports the participation of minority-owned businesses in the $60-billion specialty food industry through mentoring, research, and education. Nearly 200 NASFT members have participated. One new San Francisco event is a pre-show “Diversity Share Group” where members network and discuss specific business concerns and challenges.
