UC Davis food science students were invited back to the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. The trade show is put on by the Specialty Food Association every year at Moscone Center.  Over sixty FST students learned about product development and food trends by speaking directly to vendors at the show. For students new to networking, sampling products was a great way to start a conversation and learn about a vendor’s journey in the food industry.

The Fancy Food Show was hosted by the Specialty Food Association and featured over 1000 vendors and 100,000 specialty food products. The Dean’s Office provided travel funding for buses to and from the event.
