On the floor at the PMA Foodservice show


MONTEREY, CA — Some 2000 people gathered here July 28-31 at the Hyatt Monterey Hotel and Spa for the annual PMA Foodservice Conference and Expo.

Four days of educational and networking opportunities all led to the grand finale — a five-hour whirlwind tradeshow where growers and distributors met with buyers to look for the next big thing in the foodservice sector.

The Produce News was there to catch it all. There's more to come from the tradeshow floor, as well as a look at the social side of Monterey and an exclusive interview with Top Chef star Richard Blais, as our video coverage continues.
