Paterson, N.J. – Feb. 28, 2018 – Kontos Foods, Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of traditional artisan breads and Mediterranean specialty foods, is headed to FoodEx Japan 2018 for the 43rd International Food & Beverage Exhibition, being held in Tokyo March 6-9. Kontos will showcase a wide range of products, including several varieties of artisan Flatbreads, its Fillo and Kataifi Doughs, Classic Baklava, and Nut Rolls. Local favorites include Kontos All-Natural, French-Style Crepes, which come in 9-inch and 11-inch sizes in both traditional and savory flavors. Light and fresh and surprisingly low in calories, the Crepes pair well with a variety of fillings in any type cuisine. Another popular item are the Mini Cocktail Flatbreads, which were a hit for sampling at last year’s show in the form of Asian-inspired “amuse bouches” which used toppings from readily available ingredients from one’s pantry or refrigerator, such as shrimp, caviar, chopped egg, mashed potatoes and sliced vegetables, to turn the bite-sized flatbreads into artful appetizers, a perfect accompaniment to any sushi platter.

“Our flatbread, and in particular our crepes, and Mini Cocktail Flatbreads go over well in Japan and all over Asia,” said Steve Kontos, Vice President of Kontos Foods. “They are fresh and perfectly complement any flavor. This year we’re continuing to fine-tune our offerings, working closely with a local food stylist/recipe developer to ensure our products resonate with Asian consumers.”
