Last week in New York City, I attended the Fancy Food Show 2016, one of the best food shows of the year.
While it is not an organic food show per se, there is an increasing amount of organic vendors and I would estimate that about 15-20% of the booths there do offer some type of organic product.
As I do each year, I name my Top 5 Organic Food Products from Fancy Food Show, and I now do it “live” from the show on Periscope.
In the video above, you’ll see these picks, and it was a very difficult endeavor to narrow it down to 5. Not only were the quality and innovation of the products impressive, but I am seeing an increasing emphasis on the “food as medicine” philosophy from companies. The products are becoming healthier and contain real medicinal properties.
The other thing of note is the sheer number of companies exhibiting at Fancy Food Show. This year, there were 2,600 vendors from 50 countries around the world, and you absolutely get a strong sense of the international feel by walking the show floor.
Not only do most countries have their own dedicated sections, but specific U.S. states do as well. Having booths organized by geography makes for a more interesting show experience, and it gives you a stronger sense from where the most innovation is coming.
Going to the Fancy Food Show is a definite highlight of the year for me, and I hope you enjoy these organic picks!
The five winners are:
