It was with a heavy heart that Deli Market News heard the recent announcement that the Specialty Food Association (SFA) was canceling its Summer Fancy Food Show.
“The Specialty Foods Association’s 66th annual Summer Fancy Food scheduled for June 28-30 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York will not take place as planned due to events outside SFA’s control—notably the national and global response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including travel restrictions, and the Javits Center’s critical service in fighting the pandemic that impacts the facility’s availability,” the association noted in a release sent to the industry.
In order to further support the specialty foods community, SFA has set up a refund center.
“The immediate priority for the SFA is to guide member exhibitors and registered attendees through an efficient and seamless process of receiving refunds or credits for the Show,” the SFA continued. “An extensive outreach campaign will begin immediately to all exhibitor members and attendees."
Deli Market News will continue to report on the latest updates that affect the industry at large.
