The exposition featured 162 booths with companies ranging from BC Hot House Foods Inc., Surrey, British Columbia, to Tanimura & Antle Inc., Salinas, Calif.

Yakima, Wash.-based Sage Fruit Co. LLC, has exhibited at the show since it started in 2004.

“This is the best year yet,” said Bill Olvey, Sage’s Longwood-based vice president of southeastern region sales. “The show has been very productive in terms of meeting customers and retailers.”

The convention also included tours of Orlando-area produce and retail operations.

This year’s tours took supermarket and foodservice purveyor attendees to Watsonville, Calif.-based Monterey Mushrooms Inc.’s Zellwood mushroom growing and packing facility and Salinas-based Taylor Fresh Foods Inc.’s Taylor Farms Florida Inc. Orlando fresh-cut operation.

Busloads of participants also visited two Orlando-area Publix Super Markets Inc. stores.
