Events & Conferences

Packaged Facts and The Center for Culinary Development cordially invite you to the 57th Summer Fancy Food Show in Washington, DC July 8 - July 12, 2011 for an illuminating seminar - Coming Soon to a Shelf Near You: Restaurant-to-Retail Product Trends (SN2)

Sunday, July 10
8:00 AM-8:45 AM

Seminar Description:

Hot culinary trends trickle into the specialty food trade from restaurants (and food trucks and farmers market) of all stripes. Whether it's the latest global flavor, a clever handheld form or a novel ingredient, restaurant chefs offer inspiration for innovation. At the same time, overarching foodservice trends indicate emerging consumer behavior and spending patterns. Consumers are eating out less and preparing more meals at home. What type of restaurant foods and experiences do consumers want to re-create? How does this affect the types of innovative products consumers want in their shopping bag or pantry?

In this illuminating seminar Kara Nielsen, Trendologist at the Center for Culinary Development, and David Sprinkle, Research Director at Packaged Facts, will present an engaging overview of restaurant-to-retail product trends, including independent restaurant menu trends and up-to-the minute examples of CPG new product introductions. Get a handle on what's going on in the foodservice sector that is creating new opportunities in specialty food development, sales and marketing.
