Winter Fancy Food First Stop on the Kontos Foods 2020 Trade Show Tour

January 16, 2020

PATERSON, NJ – Kontos Foods, Inc., is kicking off 2020 at the Specialty Food Association’s 2020 Winter Fancy Food Show, which takes place January 19- 21 at Moscone Center in San Francisco. The U.S.-based manufacturer and distributor of traditional artisan breads and Mediterranean specialty foods attends many trade shows every year, including international, national, regional, and local shows. At the Winter Fancy Food Show, in addition to its flatbread, which includes more than 60 varieties, Kontos Foods will be showcasing more than a dozen specialty food products at the Kontos Foods Booth #126.

Featured products include Gordita flatbreads, which are handmade soft flatbread “taco shells,” perfect for making stuffed taco sandwiches, filled with meat, cheese, salsa or sour cream. Kontos will also feature Toasted Tidbits, made from sliced Kontos’ signature GYRO Bread, toasted into delicious Tidbits, which are ideal for dips, soups, salads or as a snack. The Kontos Booth will also have plenty from its pastry lineup: desserts such as Classic and Assorted Baklava, and appetizers such as Spanakopita and Tyropita. Kontos’ popular Pita and flatbreads will also be available, from its trademarked Pocket-Less Pita and Pre-Oiled GYRO Bread, to Pre-Grilled Cocktail Flatbreads and Pre-Grilled Mini Oval Flatbreads. For consumers looking for a healthier flatbread, Kontos will be showcasing its Greek Lifestyle Flatbread, which has half the carbs and almost twice the protein of traditional flatbread.

The Winter Fancy Food Show focuses on new and classic specialty food and beverage products. Open only to qualified buyers and industry professionals, the show attracts more than 1,400 exhibitors from around the globe, who are expected to show off more than 80,000 specialty food and beverages products, from confections, cheese and coffee to snacks, spices, ethnic, natural and organic goods.

“Our products are perfectly suited for this show because of the extra effort that goes into making them,” said Steve Kontos, president of Kontos Foods. “Food buyers are expecting a little more, and we aim to over-deliver, such as on the superior quality of our flatbread, which is hand-stretched for fluffiness and contains No Trans Fat. No matter where our products are sold in retail outlets or food service establishments, we pledge to uphold that commitment to quality.”

Kontos sells its products to retailers and foodservice establishments across North America and several other countries. Follow Kontos on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter at @KontosFoods; or Kontos Foods Inc. on LinkedIn.

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.
