This Week's Highlights

Trade mission to the National Restaurant Association Show, May 16-19, 2015, Chicago, IL

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

Join the Atlantic Canadian delegation to talk part in a “Walker Program” to discover new business opportunities and gather competitive market intelligence at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago, Illinois.

The Atlantic Food, Beverage and Processors Association Inc. is leading an Atlantic delegation as part of the International Business Development Agreement (IBDA) in partnerships with the four Atlantic Canadian provinces. Recruitment is now open for agrifood, seafood, and food service related companies from Atlantic Canada, interested in participating in the National Restaurant Association Show to be held from May 16 – 19, 2015.

The National Restaurant Association Show is one of the largest food and hospitality events in North America targeting companies that supply the restaurant and hotel industry. It is anticipated that the show will draw participation from 1,800 companies and over 44,000 attendees.

Annual food service expenditures in the US are $681 billion, while those in Canada are $67 billion.

Many Atlantic Canadian Food Processors already supply much of their production to the food service industry and it represents a huge opportunity for your company.
