Local and proud of it — that is the hallmark of the Brooklyn food manufacturers showing at the 54th Summer Fancy Food Show under the Real Brooklyn™/Brooklyn Goes Global banner (booths 5414 and 5416), June 29-July 1 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City. Whether it’s fudge from an old family recipe but suited to today’s discerning foodie, or hot sauce that is truly “fuel for food,” Brooklyn will be well represented.
Real Brooklyn™ is a targeted, one-stop-shop marketing initiative of Brooklyn Goes Global (BGG), a program created by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce to help Brooklyn-based manufacturers sell their products nationally and internationally by providing sales and marketing support.
Four companies displaying at this year’s event — newcomers Brooklyn Petro and Brooklyn Fudge will join show veterans Wine Cellar Sorbets and Great King/King of the Sea — all share something besides local aesthetics. Each brand offers a new twist on an old favorite, like Brooklyn Fudge’s Wasabi Pecan fudge or Wine Cellar Sorbet’s transforming classic wine varietals into an icy treat.
