The 2017 Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo, which will be held August 27-29 in Los Angeles, will bring together more than 400 exhibitors from the food and restaurant industry. Hispanic and Latin American products will also be present at the event, at the Sabor Latino Pavilion.

“It’s a platform for Latin food professionals to come together”, said Lilly Rocha, founder of Sabor Latino, to Abasto Media and Magazine.

The Pavilion will focus on Hispanic and Latin American products for the restaurant, foodservice and retail market, specifically new and traditional, authentic ingredients, flavors, products, prepared foods and private label products, offering restaurant and foodservice operators the opportunity to stay on top of consumer’s growing interest in cuisine with no ethnic boundaries.

In addition to the 14 exhibitors that will be present at the pavilion, Sabor Latino will hold on Monday, August 28, from 11 am to 1 pm, the Latin Food Symposium, which, according to Rocha, is a more intimate event, with a capacity for about one hundred people.

The Symposium, presented by the recently launched Latino Food Industry Association, will feature a panel that will have an organic discussion on the state of the Latino food industry and Dr. David Hayes Bautista will be presenting the Latino Gross Domestic Product Report, of which he is co-author. Rocha highlighted the importance of the Latino Food Industry Association to offer support to Hispanics who have business and work in the food industry.

The Sabor Latino Pavilion is ideal for Latino professionals

“The Sabor Latino Pavilion at the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo 2017 is an ideal place for Latino professionals to meet, exchange information, conduct business, and make contacts with other industry professionals,” concluded Rocha.
