Fresno Food Expo and Taste, Tally, & Tweet

I had the opportunity to attend the Fresno Food Expo's Exclusive Preview Event titled, "Taste, Tally & Tweet."  The event included all the new products for 2016 that were entered into the New Product Awards.  I was able to taste and drink all of these new products and speak to each individual company.  You have the opportunity to vote for the People's Choice Awards by clicking HERE.  The winner will be announced at Explolicious on July 28th. 

My top favorites of the night were:
California Dried Fruit, Inc- Fruit Spreads
Poindexter Nut Company-Flavored Walnuts
Homegrown Organic Farms- Freeze-Dried Organic Fruit
Riley's Hard Hand Crafted Root Beer

One of my passions is supporting local business so this preview was really special to me because all the products and companies were from the Central Valley.  It was so much fun to get to speak to the owners of each business to hear a little bit about their mission and product.  I felt like I was on the ground floor with them and I'm happy to cheer them on.

As fun as the Exclusive Preview was I can't imagine how great the Fresno Food Expo will be this year.  The Expo is both a business-to-business trade show and also a public event.  The trade show gathers over 1000 buyers from all over the world to buy our local products. WooHoo Central Valley!
The Food Expo is open to the public from 5:00-8:00 pm and features over 150 food and beverage exhibitors and 10 restaurants, local brews, wine, and spirits.
