Growing Appetites for a Healthier World
The 2019 PMA Foodservice Conference & Expo in Monterey was an event that was packed with energy and enthusiasm from the education programs to the expo and networking opportunities. There were nearly 1,900 attendees, including around 600 buyers. Of the 201 exhibitors on the sold-out show floor there were 30 first timers, and a record 36 participants in the Fresh Ideas Showcase.
The central tenet all participants had in common was a desire to bring more fresh, flavorful produce to plates and to provide a hungry public with quality produce products and new and innovative flavors.
We would like to congratulate the winners of this year's Best of Show contest, sponsored by Sunkist. Booths were judged by a group of industry experts and peers.
- Driscoll's – Best of Show
- Coastline Family Farms – 2nd Place, Best of Show
- Good Farms – Best Product Promo
Also, congratulations to Duda Farm Fresh Foods who won the PMA Produce Plate Award presented by Ted Allen and the People’s Choice Award at PMA’s 2019 Strolling Lunch Competition. The winning dish was prepared by Chef Todd Fisher.
See you again in 2020! Be sure to mark your calendar for July 24-25, 2020, back in gorgeous Monterey, CA.
