Kosherfest 2014 preview: Serving up Israel’s yummiest


On Novermber 11-12, the Meadowlands in New Jersey will host KOSHERFEST, renowned around the world as the premier industry event for the kosher food market.  It is the most important trade show in the United States for the kosher food space, and a must-see for buyers, distributors, sellers, technologies and press in the kosher market.  As always, this year’s show will feature a very large contingent from Israel.  Although KOSHERFEST regularly features kosher food products from all over the world, by some estimates, at least 30% of the show could be representative of Israeli companies and brands.

1382922_659495607428397_1706691429_n[1]This year’s Israeli delegation, features every food type imaginable.  From the very basic, including spices and baking ingredients, to the finished foods, such as poultry and meat products, processed foods, dips, snacks, cakes, pickles and condiments.  Additionally, Israeli companies on hand will proudly exhibit their specialty food items and spirits, including wine, beer, soft drinks and juices.

As always, there will be  major Israeli Export Institute sponsored pavilion, although Israeli products will be represented by importers throughout the show, and not just in the pavilion.

On the morning of November 12, our office will team up with IEI to host an invitation only breakfast for buyers, importers, distributors and press.  The event will feature a panel of leading buyers in the grocery industry, where attendees can learn about benefits and considerations when importing Israeli foods for local consumers of kosher products.   For more information about the breakfast or about the Israeli delegation at KOSHERFEST, please contact Hanna at the Israel Economic Mission in NYC.
