“Celebrating Fresh” at the 2014 New York Produce Show
Held December 2-4 in Manhattan with focus on products, services and building relationships
A great convergence of fresh produce buyers and sellers is set to take place in Manhattan with the 5th annual New York Produce Show and Conference, being held December 2-4 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.
The trade show will feature more than 400 exhibiting companies, providing what organisers say will be an opportunity for buyers to meet and interact with the industry’s finest produce and floral suppliers and leading service providers, and to discover new product sources and services.
Representing a diverse group of vendors, they will range from local growers to national shippers of produce and floral products, from regional wholesale groups to broadline distributors, and from international importers/exporters to transportation and technical-service providers.
Presented by the Eastern Produce Council and Produce Business magazine, the three-day event also includes networking opportunities, a retail “thought-leader” panel hosted by Perishable Pundit Jim Prevor, educational micro-sessions and tours of the region’s vibrant industry, including local retailers, wholesalers, foodservice distributors and urban farms and unique eateries.
The theme of the main conference is “Celebrating Fresh” and back by popular demand are two mini conferences: the Global Trade Symposium on Tuesday, December 2, and the Foodservice Forum “Ideation Fresh” on Thursday, December 4.
