SECAUCUS, NJ — Allegiance Retail Services LLC's Holiday Food Show has returned. After the event was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Holiday Food Show returned in full force Thursday, June 15, at its familiar venue, the Meadowlands Exposition Center, here.

And as before the pandemic, fresh produce was very well represented from vendors all over the country showcasing a wide variety of items.

"Our vendors have been really supportive of this show," Gary Roselli, Allegiance's senior category manager, told The Produce News during the event. "It's good to be face to face again. Especially with produce, you need to be hands-on."

Allegiance, a retailer-owned cooperative headquartered in Iselin, NJ, serves communities at more than 110 locations in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
