Kontos Foods to Attend New England Food Show

Featured Items to Include Pocket-Less Pita®, Greek Lifestyle Flatbread®, Gyro breads, grilled Panini breads, All-Natural, French-Style Crepes, and Fillo Dough/Pastries

Paterson, New Jersey – March 1, 2019 –Just back from two back-to-back international food shows, Kontos Foods, Inc., a U.S.-based manufacturer and distributor of traditional artisan breads and Mediterranean specialty foods, will be traveling to Boston this weekend to attend the New England Food Show, taking place at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center March 3-5. Kontos will be exhibiting at Booth #749.

Kontos Foods will be featuring its full lineup of 60+ flatbreads, Fillo Dough and Baklava pastries, as well as its newest item, Toasted Tidbits™, made from sliced Kontos’ signature GYRO Bread, toasted into delicious Tidbits™.  Featured flatbreads will include Kontos Pocket-Less Pita®, Greek Lifestyle Flatbread®, Gyro breads, grilled Panini breads, All-Natural, French-Style Crepes, and other ethnic flatbreads. Fillo dough, which comes in varying thicknesses, as well as Kataifi dough, will also be available for viewing and sampling.

Kontos Foods flatbreads come in a wide variety of flavors and styles, perfect for appealing to food service establishments and restaurants catering in New England. Some examples include:

Gyro Bread – This bread is ‘pre-oiled’ for easier handling and requires a minimal amount of heating to become extremely flexible. Ideal for traditional souvlaki/kabobs and gyros.

Grilled Panini Bread – This oval bread is ‘pre-grilled’ for convenience; requires a minimal amount of heating to become extremely flexible. Ideal for Panini sandwiches and bruschetta.

Massala Nan – A blend of fresh chopped hot chili and onions with oriental spices create this wonderfully flavorful oval flatbread.

Lavash – The perfect ‘roll-up’ flatbread! This soft and pliable 9 by 11-inch rectangular flatbread rolls in both directions.  Because it is yeast based, it will absorb moisture and not fall apart.  May also be used to make ‘pinwheels’ for appetizers.

Greek Lifestyle Flatbread – A hand-stretched flatbread with 2x protein, 1/2 carbohydrates, and less sugar and calories than other flatbreads; ideal for sandwiches and appetizers.

9 and 11-Inch Traditional and Savory Crepes – These crepes have a delicate, contemporary flavor and texture to complement a variety of fillings; they also make a delicious low-cal substitute for a traditional wrap. The New England Food Show, which is produced by the National Restaurant Association and sponsored by the Massachusetts Restaurant Association, claims to be the largest and most attended foodservice trade show in the Northeast. Each year it features hundreds of exhibitors, culinary demonstrations and competitions, education sessions and seminars, buying specials, new product showcases, and more. The show takes place during the same time as the International Restaurant & Food Service Show of New York, where Kontos Foods is also represented.

Steve Kontos, president and owner of Kontos Foods, said he felt that it was important to attend both shows. “While proximity makes New York a natural market for us, New England is a very strong market on its own,” Kontos said. “New England is also rich in cultural diversity, and our vast variety of flatbreads fill the needs of foodservice and restaurants catering to customers living there.” He added the fact that Kontos Foods flatbreads, are ‘hand stretched for fluffiness™’ is another reason they work so well in a foodservice or restaurant environment. “Pop them out of the freezer, reheat, and they truly taste freshly made.”

Kontos sells its products to retailers and foodservice establishments across North America and several other countries. All of its flatbreads are made in the U.S.A.
