We invite you to exhibit and visit the 5th Annual World of the Latino Cuisine Trade Show, El Mundo de la Cocina Latina, on September 19-20, 2018 at the Meadowlands Expo Center!

This food and beverage trade show includes the participation of American/domestic food manufacturers, producers, and distributors.

Importers and exporters from the Caribbean and Latin American countries also participate as exhibitors. Exhibit categories include frozen foods, groceries, organic products, dairy, beverages, and, in addition, non-food products. Both foodservice and retail are featured.

The event provides a potent venue for producers to explore distribution channels developed for, and serving, the growing Latino market in America. This market has now a potent purchasing power of $2.1 trillion USD, with food & beverage expenses of over $240 billion USD per year!

Located in the limitless New York Metro Region, this trade show will open doors for those new to these markets and will facilitate additional sales for those already active in this lucrative and growing area.

Show Components

Each year, the trade show features educational sessions by industry experts and relevant government agencies. Participants increase their knowledge and enhance their productivity by participating in these valuable and dynamic sessions.

Our educational partners in the past have included the Rutgers Food Innovation Center, the U.S.  Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and multiple industry experts.

Please stay tuned for the announcements about our educational sessions and workshops during the 2018 show, which will be posted here.

The Latino cuisine is very diverse and very rich in talent.

Annually, the trade show features Culinary Demonstrations (“Showcooking”) by international celebrity chefs. In the past, we have invited chefs from Perú, Mexico, Spain, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Costa Rica. In 2017, we had the participation of a major delegation from the Cuba Culinary Federation, led by Chef Eddy Fernández Monte, its president.

These demonstrations are a major feature of the event, and are attended by large audiences. The attendees pick up new recipes and tips on how to prepare a myriad of delicious and healthy dishes, from ceviche to paella. Culinary Science students assist the invited chefs, gaining valuable experience and earning scholarships as part of their participation.

In 2018, we will again invite chefs of international caliber to “showcook” for our attendees. We will be announcing our roster of celebrity chefs shortly.

 

Tasting Latino Food

Exhibitors will have access to both international and domestic vendors; domestic producers meeting foreign buyers, international producers meeting U.S. buyers.

Face to face meetings could be pre-arranged to meet at the show’s venue, or we could provide basic information for you to make arrangements to visit local distributors.

In addition to formal meetings, you will be able to network with your professional colleagues during the show, and at the Latin Food & Wine Festival/Grand Reception which will be held Wednesday, September 19th at the premises. There is no additional cost to participate at this truly unique grand reception.
