Foods 'round The World offers a series of interviews recorded by LTR's New York team at the FANCY FOOD Show, June 30-July 1.

Over a 3-day period we selected a number of purveyors that represented a cross-section of the most desirable products that today's consumers are purchasing on a regular basis. The NASFT, creators of the show, suggest that over $88 billion in U.S. sales were generated in this market in 2013, a 10.4% increase.

Over 2700 food producers were represented at this show, including 1500 U.S. based exhibitors and nearly 500 Italian exhibitors from all 20 regions of Italy. It is the largest show of its type in N.A.
