The Virginia Food and Beverage Expo is the ideal location for journalists to sink their teeth into all things Virginia.  More than 100 Virginia specialty food and beverage companies representing hundreds of jobs across the Commonwealth are expected to showcase their fine products.  The convenient trade show will allow you to spend part of your day visiting one-on-one with Virginia’s leading food purveyors, many of whom represent small to medium size family-owned Virginia companies. Virginia’s specialty food and beverage companies contribute heavily to Virginia’s economy, as well as to the national and global scene. Total sales of specialty foods in 2012 topped $85.87 billion, according to the Specialty Food Association (SFA). Specialty food is among the fastest growing industries in the U.S., with sales skyrocketing by 22.1 percent between 2010 and 2012.
