The new edition of the Summer Fancy Food Show is in its final preparations. Industry professionals can now register for what has become the most important premium food and beverage show in the United States.
If you are interested in attending and want to know everything the event has to offer, read on. From El Nogal we give you all the details.
What is the Summer Fancy Food Show and what does it offer?
The Summer Fancy Food Show is the largest and most important gourmet food and delicatessen trade show in the United States. Aimed exclusively at professionals and organized by the Specialty Food Association (SFA) since 1955, the Summer Fancy Food Show is the place to discover the most innovative products in the industry.
It also offers numerous opportunities for its visitors. Thus, thanks to the presence of national and international exhibitors, they have the opportunity to establish contacts with industry professionals and do business. Likewise, they can discover new trends in the food sector, learn about the most revolutionary culinary techniques or increase their gastronomic knowledge by attending its many seminars, presentations, tastings and cooking workshops.
On the other hand, it is worth remembering that the event is also held in winter. During 2022, the Winter Fancy Food Show took place in Las Vegas, where nearly 10,000 participants attended in person, and the organization expects the summer edition to be even larger.
SOFI Awards, a recognition of the most innovative gourmet products
As part of the Summer Fancy Food Show, the SOFI Awards (Specialty Outstanding Food Innovation) are also presented to the most innovative gourmet food and beverages.
When choosing the winners, each product is judged by food and beverage professionals (chefs, academics, food writers…). In addition, the tastings are blind and the products are judged on a variety of factors, such as taste, texture and aroma.
Undoubtedly, this is an award that gives the winners a great opportunity to boost their business and make it even more visible, as well as to obtain more and better commercial contracts.
In the 2022 edition, the categories are 51 and include the most varied premium products, from snacks and appetizers, chocolates, beverages and spices, to seafood, pickles and olives, pastas, nuts and dried fruits, among others.

Gourmet food and the importance of quality in the kitchen
The gourmet food sector in the United States is booming. More and more consumers are opting for new culinary experiences, looking for quality raw materials and different flavors.
In fact, the U.S. market shows great interest in Spanish products, from traditional to more specialized and innovative ones. It is a growing trend that can also be seen at the Summer Fancy Food Show, where Spain’s presence is increasing.
One of the most demanded products are nuts, because they are a nutritious and healthy food with great applications in gastronomy. In this sense, nuts can not only be tasted as snacks, but also work perfectly as premium ingredients in restaurants, providing textures, aromas and unique tastes.
In short, nuts of Spanish origin such as almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts or pistachios are high quality products capable of transforming any dish, providing diners with intense bites and with all the flavor of the Mediterranean diet.
