New California Food Expo Open for Registration


FRESNO, CA
Thursday, January 24th, 2019

Get your typing fingers at the ready—the all-new California Food Expo has officially opened up registration for buyers and exhibitors. Once known as the Fresno Food Expo, the show has transformed itself to be a comprehensive outlet for retail and foodservice buyers located across the globe to connect with California food companies. The expo—hosted at the Fresno Convention & Entertainment Center—will also be held during fall for the first time ever, shifting to a September 9-10 schedule.

Randy Duccummon, Vice President, Northern California, Whole Foods Market“There are so many producers I’ve never heard of or seen before at the Expo,” shared Randy Ducummon, Vice President for Whole Foods Market, Northern California & Reno, as well as a member of the Expo’s Retail Advisory Council. “It makes the Expo experience a great way to find new and emerging items that are on trend.”

California boasts twice as many food and beverage manufacturing facilities than any other state, according to the Expo’s press release, with nearly 400 different crops grown annually. In total, California’s food industry is valued at $72.27 billion.

Amy Fuentes, Manager, California Food Expo“California is home to world-renowned food producers, growers, and innovators,” said Amy Fuentes, Manager of the California Food Expo. “We’re excited that our new Expo date will showcase an expanded variety of products from over 15 different categories crafted by large-scale manufacturers, boutique brands, and budding food entrepreneurs. It will be a true reflection of California’s dominating food industry.”
