2015 Latino Food Industry Trade Show Features Producers and Dynamic International Business Exchanges


At the heart of the Latino market in the Tri-state New York Metropolitan area, the “World of the Latino Cuisine: El Mundo de la Cocina Latina, a food product and beverage trade show, will showcase domestic and international food products  on August 26-27, 2015 , at the Meadowlands Expo Center in the New York/New Jersey market.

The trade show provides a dynamic venue where food producers of all kinds will exhibit their offerings for the ever-growing Hispanic marketplace. The show will feature an exhibit floor, educational sessions and business exchanges.

“We are expecting a full house with the participation of many providers and importers” says William Colón, President and CEO of The Latino Institute, the show organizer. “It would be a great opportunity for them to identify new business opportunities and grow their markets” adds Mr. Colón. “We should remember Latino buying power reached about $1.3 trillion in 2014 and Hispanic shoppers spend significantly more than other groups on food consumed at home, due to the importance of family mealtime and larger family units. Our show in 2014 was an outstanding success and we are sure this year we will improve on our results, both in terms of exhibitors and attendees”, adds Mr. Colón.

 This food and beverage trade show invites domestic and international food manufacturers, producers and distributors as exhibitors, and the attendance of buyers, merchandisers, distributors, small and medium sized specialty food stores, regional chains, caterers, restaurants, independents, and bodegueros. Exhibit categories include frozen foods, groceries, organic products, beverages, non-food products, and food service vendors/providers.

The active and massive participation of Latino food and beverage distributors at the trade show in 2014, makes this a truly unique opportunity for producers or importers seeking to enter the market or expand sales. 

“This is a selling show. We are seeking exhibitors who are serious about marketing to the ever-growing Hispanic consumer, and who are willing to invest the resources to succeed. It is a modest investment to exhibit at our show, but the ROI can be truly profitable and significant. Remember, this is the largest trade show dedicated to the Latino food industry in the United States. Don’t miss it!” adds Mr. Colón.
