IFPA Foodservice Conference Expo a flurry of activity
The International Fresh Produce Association welcomed produce suppliers, foodservice innovators, chefs, menu planners and others to the first Foodservice Conference as a part of the IFPA banner (41st in Monterey). With a record high of almost 2,000 registered attendees, the Foodservice Conference illustrated that demand is strong for foodservice and produce connections.
Dubbed the best five-and-a-half hours in produce, the Foodservice Conference Expo served as the perfect opportunity for foodservice operators and other buyers to meet with industry representatives with the best products, services and innovations. The buyer audience attended in full force, and with over 900 registered buyers from over 250 companies, the buyer to supplier ratio was of almost one to one.
