WHAT ARE SPECIALTY FOODS? We are in the midst of a green revolution! Natural, organic and sustainable products are proliferating our markets and our world in general. Food is viewed differently today than ever before. New food items inhabit the marketplace; foods with different, foreign and exotic names like hummus, kumbacha, tomatillo and miso. There is an enormous acceptance to the new and different. It is within this context that our opportunity exists for the sale of specialty foods. So, what makes a food specialty? We answer this as follows: specialty foodsinclude items that are gourmet, natural, organic, special diet or ethnic in nature. These products are not the regular grocery items you have been accustomed to over the last 50 years. Specialty foods typically require an educational process for the consumer and need to be sold and presented differently. There is a story that needs to be told with most specialty foods. Specialty foods offer a unique experience for the consumer. This experience, we believe, is what makes them special. Foodservice or retail let us tell your product’s story!
