AfroFood at the 2012 Fancy Food Show in DC

The 58th Summer Fancy Food Show, held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., was a magnet for thousands of specialty food buyers from the top names in retailing and foodservice from around the world. The three-day event, the largest marketplace devoted exclusively to specialty foods and beverages in North America, took place June 17 – 19, 2012. More than 80 countries and regions were represented.

AfroFood was one of 2,250 exhibitors at this year’s show and we wowed everyone with our Curry Chicken made with our very own AfroFood Curry Spice. We look forward to partnering with a number of retailers in the near future to bring AfroFood Spices to a store near you!
