The Speciality Food Association (SFA) returned for the 44th annual Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco on 13th-15th January 2019, which is largest speciality food and beverage trade show on the West Coast of America. The most influential buying decision-makers from retail, food service, e-commerce, and hospitality flock to the show each year to taste trends and do business.

Attendees expected 1,400 exhibitors showcasing 90,000 speciality food products at the show. Last year’s show was described as “awesome,” “fun,” and a “great place to spot trends” by attendees.

Belton Farm attended the Winter Fancy Food Show alongside UK partners, Coombe Castle International, joining forces with the Atalanta Corporation to deliver the award winning range of classic, contemporary and vat-made Great British Cheese to customers and consumers state-wide.

This years WFF Show saw the launch of the new Belton Farm US Range which is all handcrafted by the skilled Belton Farm Cheesemakers, who use free range milk from local dairy farms and pride themselves on their cheese-making heritage and provenance.
