Greece at the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City June 12-14

NEW YORK – The 66th Summer Fancy Food Show, the annual international, professional exhibition takes place June 12-14 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York with Greece among the countries featuring their impressive range of products.

The exhibition is organized by the Specialty Food Association which includes more than 3,000 members participating. The Summer Fancy Food Show is considered the largest exhibition event in North America devoted exclusively to specialty foods and beverages and is a business event that attracts the most important representatives from the field of retail, catering, wholesale, distribution, catering and the food and beverage industry, as well as the international media.

Given the American interest in shifting to a healthy Mediterranean diet, the high per capita income, and a thriving Greek Community, the U.S. is a key target market for Greek exports, according to Enterprise Greece which was designed to promote and support Greece’s substantial investment opportunities and to engage the global business community with first-class, high end export products— goods and services made in Greece.

Enterprise Greece has a large section of booths at the Summer Fancy Food Show on Level 3 at the Javits Center showcasing the delicious products available for all attendees to check out during the show. Among those products are olives of various types, including the famous Kalamata olives, the flavorful cheeses such as kefalotyri, kefalograviera, graviera, and, of course, feta. Greek honey, extra virgin olive oil, and prepared foods including gigantes, revithia, and dolmades will also be highlighted at the show.

The National Herald/Ethnikos Kirikas will be there covering the event and the Greek edition’s Periodiko will be dedicated to the event and Greece’s participation.

It should be noted that with COVID-19 infection rates remaining low, New York City and the Javits Center have removed their COVID-19 restrictions on indoor settings. Proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test will no longer be required for those who visit the Javits Center and, while strongly encouraged, face coverings will also no longer be required.

Open only to the trade, the 2022 Summer Fancy Food Show is the largest East Coast B2B-only specialty food and beverage show. While this year’s partner country for the show is Italy, the Greek presence is always a highlight of the exhibition.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
