The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) proudly presents the Virginia Food and Beverage Expo.  The Virginia Food and Beverage Expo is a unique marketplace that connects food and beverage buyers directly with impressive Virginia food and beverage products. Many of the products already have a huge following, while others are brand new to the marketplace and are on the verge of becoming the next big buy of the season.

The Expo is open exclusively to buyers and features hundreds of culinary creations and specialty dishes made in Virginia that are properly packaged and labeled for the retail setting. The Expo is convenient, one-stop shopping and will be held at the Greater Richmond Convention Center in downtown Richmond, providing easy access to area hotels, Interstates, Richmond International Airport, Amtrak and bus stations. Retailers, wholesalers, distributors, foodservice representatives and those in search of private label brands are sure to walk away pleased after placing orders on the show floor. The show is not open to the public and there is no cost to attend.

Virginia specialty foods and beverages have earned exceptional reviews from celebrity chefs, restaurateurs, and gourmet food editors, in addition to major retail, grocery and specialty buyers. The Virginia Food and Beverage Expo is only held every other year, providing buyers with a true taste of the latest and greatest products to hit the market.
