As part of SFA's partnership with SIAL, an SFA-sponsored booth of 2018 sofi Gold Award winners will be at the entrance of Hall 6 in the SIAL Innovation area. This is the second time the Specialty Food Association's sofi Awards have been included in this popular SIAL exhibit area. In addition to showcasing some of the finest specialty foods available in the United States, SFA President Phil Kafarakis will be addressing SIAL on innovation in the American marketplace.

"We are pleased to bring increased attention to American innovation at SIAL Paris, as the SFA continues to forge stronger ties with SIAL and our other international partners. This is all part of our commitment to broaden relationships for our members around the world," said Kafarakis. "I'm looking forward to sharing the findings from SFA's State of the Industry research with attendees during my presentation. It will also be exciting to have SFA members sampling their products at SIAL, and we anticipate the display of winners of the sofi Award, the highest honor in the specialty food industry, will be very popular."

"For over 50 years SIAL has served as a tastemaker and source of inspiration," say Nicolas Trentesaux, SIAL Network managing director. "In collaborating with the Specialty Food Association, we are able to highlight more product innovation and inform more buyers in the international marketplace.
