Attendee Testimonials

“It was a great show, and I’ve told all of my colleagues that we will likely end up carrying 90% of the items in the show, which is an unprecedented rate of acceptance. Our company has considered this one of the best shows in the field of many contenders since its inception.”

Georgia Main Food Group, Buyer

“Our UBC Culinary and Purchasing team always attend FTGU. It is an excellent opportunity for us to make connections with local F&B businesses. It is also where healthy, local F&B innovation begins. The intimate size of the event is ideal and in just a few hours you can have meaningful conversations with all vendors. At UBC we purchase high quality, nutritious, sustainable foods and prioritize fresh, minimally processed ingredients. We are also deeply committed to local food. We understand that food tastes better and is more sustainable when it is consumed as close to source as possible. FTGU helps us deliver on these important values.”
