The History of Fancy Food Show, from the beginning to 2024

The Fancy Food’s inception dates back to the post-war mid 1950s. Since then, it has undergone significant transformations.

Initially, the event literally focused on high end imported products and “fancy” foods like imported Champagne and caviar. It was thus mainly based on catering to the tastes of American consumers who developed a taste for European flavors.

However, over the years the show has evolved to reflect new trends and the way the specialty food industry was growing and diversifying. The show started to expand to include a broader range of products, such as gourmet snacks, artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, chocolates, teas, coffees, and many more.

Today, the Summer Fancy Food Show is one of the largest and most prestigious trade-only events in the specialty food industry. Every year it attracts thousands of industry professionals from around the world, and among every food sector.

The show has also become a platform for innovation, featuring cutting-edge ingredients and products that cater to emerging trends and consumer preferences. Recent trends spotted at the last editions of Fancy Food include the use of kelp, cactus, and hemp in product development, as well as keto-friendly formulations and snacks made from mushrooms.

But in addition to product discovery, the Fancy Food Show has mainly become a hub for networking and education. The event offers various sessions and workshops, such as the Organic Insights session at the Summer Fancy Food Show. This provides valuable insights into consumer preferences and behaviors, as well as essential data to guide strategic decisions in the thriving organic market.

In 2024, Fancy Food has maintained its commitment to values-driven innovation and evolution, thus proudly showcasing the diverse range of specialty food products all around the world.
