Formerly known as the Fresno Food Expo, this year’s California Food Expo is returning with not only a new name, but a new set of dates.

The food show hosted in Fresno will be held Sept. 9-10, shifting from the traditional summer dates it has held since its inception in 2011.

Organizers announced the name change during last year’s event, to recognize its statewide and even global reach.

Also new this year is a retail advisory council to help put the event at the forefront of industry trends.

“There are so many producers I’ve never heard of or seen before at the Expo.” said Randy Ducummon, vice president for Whole Foods Market, Northern California & Reno, and a member of the Expo’s Retail Advisory Council, “It makes the Expo experience a great way to find new and emerging items that are on trend.”

The two-day event agenda this year will include new product awards, educational sessions, keynote speakers, networking opportunities and more.

“California is home to world-renowned food producers, growers and innovators,” said Amy Fuentes, manager of the California Food Expo. “We’re excited that our new Expo date will showcase an expanded variety of products from over 15 different categories crafted by large-scale manufacturers, boutique brands and budding food entrepreneurs. It will be a true reflection of California’s dominating food industry.”
