NEW YORK, NY (November 20, 2019) The Specialty Food Association has partnered with the Fine Chocolate Industry Association (FCIA), a non-profit organization that supports development, innovation and best practices in the fine chocolate industry.
As part of this relationship, the FCIA will participate in the Specialty Food Association’s 2020 Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. With a fine chocolate-centered pavilion, the FCIA will highlight fine chocolate to a significant audience of specialty food professionals. The pavilion will include a speaking stage for educational presentations about the fine chocolate industry, and exhibit space for chocolate samplings and pairings.
”FCIA represents excellence in the world of chocolate,” says SFA President Phil Kafarakis. “Their presence at the Winter Fancy Food Show offers attendees an extraordinary opportunity to learn more about premium chocolate and enables us to help strengthen relationships between the fine chocolate community and our retail and foodservices buying community. It’s always exciting to partner with a segment that can provide more access to innovation, content, and education for SFA members.”
“FCIA and our nearly 350 members are excited about the new partnership with the Specialty Food Association. The FCIA Fine Chocolate Pavilion in San Francisco will help forge new business linkages and feature nine different educational presentations and tastings. All show participants are welcome to stop by the pavilion, join the presentations, and sample some of the highest quality chocolate products,” said Bill Guyton, FCIA Executive Director.
The Winter Fancy Food Show is a trade-only show held in San Francisco from January 19-21. For more information or to register for the show, please click here.
