Maine International Trade Center (MITC) invites you to participate in the State of Maine Pavilion at the Winter Fancy Food Show.

Each year, 18,000+ Winter Fancy Food Show attendees discover more than 80,000 products featuring the world’s finest foods and beverages from more than 1,400 exhibitors representing over 35 countries.

Since 1955, the Fancy Food Shows have been North America’s largest specialty food and beverage marketplace. Between the Winter Show in San Francisco and the Summer Show in New York City, the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade events bring in more than 40,000 attendees from more than 80 countries and regions to see 260,000 innovative food and specialty food products.


In addition to the trade show, companies will participate in the Food Export USA International Buyers Mission, giving Maine companies the opportunity to present products in pre-scheduled, one-on-one appointments with some of the industry’s most important international distributors, retailers, and foodservice buyers.
