“IDDBA represents a significant market for us,” said Steve Kontos, president of Kontos Foods. “Serious buyers and food executives are there and they’re eager to see what new products are available. It’s also a great way to network with wholesale buyers from small- to medium-sized restaurants and delis. They know they can rely on our flatbread and fillo-based products, which are of consistent, superior quality. Our Pre-Oiled Gyro Bread is always a favorite because it’s hand-stretched for fluffiness™, and can be reheated to taste fresh-from-the-oven.”

Kontos sells its products to retailers and foodservice establishments across North America and several other countries. Find Kontos on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Kontosfoods and follow the company on Twitter@KontosFoods.
