June 23, 2022 Newark, De. and Washington D.C. – International Fresh Produce Association’s BB #:378962 Foodservice Conference is coming up on July 28-29 in Monterey, California.

It is the “can’t miss” event for produce and foodservice and this year will be packed with buyers and suppliers looking to connect and conduct business.

In addition to the excellent line up of speakers, The Foodservice Conference includes an Expo that is open from 11:00 – 4:30 on July 29. The Expo features growers-shippers and processors; transportation companies, technology providers and those with packaging solutions. The event serves as a one stop shop for the over 100 buyer companies in attendance.

This year, buyers come from every segment of the Foodservice supply chain including foodservice operators (restaurant chains and groups, colleges/universities, airlines, healthcare and more), foodservice distributors and wholesalers; K-12 representatives, chefs and menu developers and more.

Buyers attending Foodservice 2022 can be found here and include Chick-fil-A Inc, Hello Fresh, US Foods, Stanford University and K-12 representatives from several school districts like Los Angeles Unified School District, Detroit Public Schools, Houston Independent School District, Seattle Public Schools and more.

“The Foodservice Conference is the premier place for Foodservice buyers and suppliers in produce to connect, create new partnerships and explore new trends and products,” said IFPA Vice President and Foodservice Lead, Joe Watson. “There’s no other event that is solely dedicated to putting produce on the plate at Foodservice. We know that produce should be half the plate and that doesn’t just mean at home. I’m looking forward to being back at the Bay to bring the best of produce to Foodservice menus.”

The exhibitor map is available now and attendees can use it to plan their show for the end of July. This also includes the “Fresh Ideas Showcase” highlighting the newest innovations in produce for Foodservice.

Additionally, all exhibitors are entered into the Best of Show Contest where a lineup of judges will choose the top three booth and product promos at the show.
