SIAL Canada attracts more than 1,000 national and international exhibitors from 50 countries, and is expected to attract more than 18,500 retail, food service and food processing buyers from over 60 countries. This year’s show will cover 220,000 square feet of exhibiting space and was sold out prior to the event.

“SIAL Canada bills itself as the biggest trade show in North America so we’re not only networking with vendors from Canada and the United States, but Mexico, China, Europe and all over,” said Steve Kontos, president of Kontos Foods. “Canada in itself is a hot market for us; consumer tastes lean toward ethnic cuisines, which dovetails perfectly with our product lineup. We continue to expand our relationship and product line with our Canadian brokers and distributors to get more Kontos flatbreads into restaurants and people’s homes.”

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.
