Six Maine food companies have been selected to show off their main courses during the 2014 Winter Fancy Foods Show (WFFS). The show will be held Jan. 19 through 21 in San Francisco, and is expected to attract 18,000 buyers from around the world.
The six companies selected are Lucy’s Granola in East Blue Hill, Northwoods Gourmet Girl in Greenville, Bixby & Co. in Rockland, Gelato Fiasco in Brunswick, Sullivan Harbor Farm Smokehouse in Sullivan and Shucks Maine Lobster in Richmond.
“Exposure for Maine’s specialty food entrepreneurs at a show of this magnitude is incredibly valuable and has the potential to yield tremendous windfalls,” said Maine Gov. Paul R. LePage. “It offers these companies a unique opportunity to showcase their amazing products. I’m very proud of these Maine enterprises and our tremendous Maine Made program. Together they help grow employment in our state by attracting and generating new investment from national and international audiences.”
Each company is participating through the Maine International Trade Center (MITC) and the Maine Made program – a successful business marketing initiative administered by the Maine Department of Economic & Community Development.
The WFFS is the West Coast’s largest specialty food and beverage event – with over 1,300 participating exhibitors, and an estimated 18,000 buyers in attendance throughout the showcase.
