Gathering of global food

 

From North America to Europe, and then to Asia... it is truly an ultimate journey for your taste buds.

 

Let’s talk about the United States first.

 

This exhibition has specially set upU.S. state food guide. Although the United States is a food desert, every state can pick out one or two delicious foods!

 

Like this one from a local farm in MinnesotaDry-aged pork, without the fishy smell of common pork in the United States, but full of meaty aroma!

 

You can buy it in some supermarkets. Next time you see this package, just grab it. You’re welcome.(I.e.

 

As a cheese continent, Wisconsin’s various cheeses are also very attractive. Look at this piece.Spicy cheese with mango flavoring, fruity, spicy and milky, unique and delicious.

 

In addition, there are cheese spreads of various flavors, which are all very good!

 

And frommichigan taffy, the caramel flavor is strong but not overly sweet. After finishing the sample, I ordered several packs to take away.

 

There’s even native American yak meat~

Let’s talk about Asia.
 This year there are many Chinese exhibitors participating, as well as various food merchants from Japan and South Korea. have to say.Asian cuisine is the trend!

 

First, we had Yibin burning noodles specially made by Master Zhong, the chef contracted for the London Olympics.

There are also freshly made xiaolongbao and dumplings~

 

Whose first cup of milk tea in the United States wasn’t Lollicup? Their family has now become a milk tea empire, offering everything from pearls to various milk tea peripheral recipes.

 

But overall, there are not many food exhibitors from China. Most of them are service providers, tableware suppliers, etc. I hope that all the foodies in the motherland can enter the NRA with more delicious food next year!

In addition, the Japanese area is also good, such as this flavored butter supplier: YesSea urchin butter, honey butter, apple butter…delicious and new.

 

 
At the dried citrus supplier booth, various types of grapefruit and dried citrus fruits were placed on the table, each of which was completely different in terms of acidity, sweetness, and flavor. 

 
 
  Next it’s Europe’s turn.
In addition to the Italian exhibition area that was seen at the NRA Show in previous years, this year there is also an exhibition area from Spain, and even exhibitors from the United Kingdom and Iceland are participating. 

You are welcome to eat all kinds of caviar.

 

Spanish ham is cut and eaten fresh.

 

Icelandic specialty Skry yogurt, whether mixed with fruits, made into cakes, or spread as sauce, it is delicious. The milky flavor is rich but not too sweet. The disadvantage is...it's easy to eat too much...

NO.2 Big brands are still the trendsetter

In addition to emerging businesses,Classic brands are still the leaders in the entire catering industry.

 

Coca-Cola remains at the center of the NRA Show just like last year.

 

So much so that when meeting people at the venue, they would always say, "Meet you at the door in front of the Coca-Cola booth."

 

Coca-Cola is naturally the flagship product, but the Costa coffee, Farlife milk, smart water, etc. under its group are as numerous as the stars.

 

Chatting with the person in charge of Coca-Cola, the other person said that sustainability and environmental protection will be the main direction of his company in the future, including using more environmentally friendly materials and launching reusable cups.

 

It can even automatically identify the type of garbage and guide customers to sort the garbage when disposing of it...

 

Heinz, this year’s presenting sponsor, erected its iconic giant ketchup bottle.

 

NO.3 Plant-based meat and environmentally friendly catering are the general trend

Coca-Cola is actively promoting sustainability, including plant-based meat and environmentally friendly lunch boxesExhibitors related to environmental protection have also prospered greatly.

First, a hundred schools of thought contended about plant-based meat, with several big companies and new faces appearing in front of the booth at the same time.

The most surprising taste is that this plant-based meat made from mushrooms is meaty, chewy, and meaty. The nuggets that are not real meat are almost as good as real nuggets.

 

After plant-based meat is subdivided into plant-based chicken, plant-based beef and plant-based pork, this year we also saw for the first timePlant fish and plant shrimp, and plant eggs.

 

Some trendy technological products also appeared in front of us. A mechanical dog that can move forward and backward was very happy at the scene.

 

An automatic sushi driver that can make rice balls by itself.

 

And this extremely bright smoke-making machine.

 

The article only introduces the most important part of this exhibition. There are many novel and interesting exhibitors and products on site, which together with the delicious food, form a dining paradise with excellent experience. After eating and drinking for three days, everyone in the team was extremely satisfied!
