Expo West may have been postponed but for the food and beverage maker community, it’s not possible to postpone the roll-out or buzz of new lines and new products. And they won’t have to.

In place of what should have been several days of meetings, networkings, and demonstrations, we’re highlighting new products here on Foodboro that didn’t get their chance to shine in Anaheim this week. No, it’s definitely not the same thing as IRL interactions but it’s something to work with while we await the new Expo West date. Also, it’s not contagious.

Keep reading for our spotlight on new products that were set to show at Expo West but are now making a digital debut. And if¬†there is a brand or product you see here that you want to know more about, send us an email at [email protected] and we’ll put you in touch!
