Our Trend Trackers Are Everywhere…

Newly Weds Foods Team members are excited by food with an insatiable appetite for evaluating new food trends to keep our customers on top of the latest news impacting new product development initiatives. Participating in industry trade shows is one way we continue to inspire new tastes. Here are some of the shows we’ve attended during the first quarter of 2015.

Winter Fancy Food Show – January 2015

Each year in San Francisco the 17,000+ Winter Fancy Food Show attendees discover more than 80,000 products featuring the world’s finest foods and beverages from 35+ countries. This show caters to the specialty foods industry but is also a great food trend indicator for food service, consumer brands, and club stores. A team from our R&D, Culinary, Sales and Marketing departments embarked on a scavenger hunt to find interesting new products, flavors and forms. We identified more than 180 concepts to stimulate thinking in a variety of categories. Contact your sales representative to learn more about our findings.

International Pizza Expo – March 2015

New Weds Foods was one of 470 exhibiting companies at this year’s International Pizza Expo, attracting 7,500 attendees, including pizza operators, distributors, buyers and manufacturers, all looking for new ideas. This was our second year showcasing the benefits of Pizza Panko™. In side-by-side product comparisons we demonstrated how this special crumb can add crispness to a pizza crust, as well as how sprinkling Pizza Panko™ on top of the cheese before adding veggies and meat toppings can keep moisture & oils from pooling on the pizza surface or from migrating to the crust or pizza box.

Research Chefs Conference – March 2015

Newly Foods has exhibited in the Culinology Expo at the Research Chefs Annual Conference from its beginning. Our unique tabletop presentation of different styles and textures of breadcrumb offerings as well colorful and interesting seasoning blends grabs a great deal of attention from expo participants, creating a great opportunity to talk about all the things Newly Weds Foods has in our portfolio from products to support services. Our booth also featured a video presentation talking about New Weds Foods’ Kitchencounters program that allows us to connect (in real time) our chefs and culinary centers around the world with customers to provide global inspiration to their product development efforts.
