McCLAIN’S OLD FLORIDA GOURMET TO HOLD ANNUAL TABLETOP SHOW AUGUST 20 AND 21
SARASOTA, Fla. June 4, 2015 – McClain’s Old Florida Gourmet is holding its annual tabletop show August 21 and 22 for producers that are interested in reaching Florida’s gourmet, gift, and tourism markets and for retailers from across the state and nation who would like to sample new and trending products.
The show has included national companies, such as Jelly Belly, The Spice Lab, DeLallo, Taffy Town, and Tortuga as well as many regional producers, according to Kelly Abercrombie, CEO of McClain’s, which is a regional distributor of shelf stable gourmet food, bulk and count candy, and Florida specialties and novelties. It also attracts national retailers like Paradies, which operates airport and hotel shops, and hundreds of retailers from across the state, Abercrombie says.
“Our shows give most of our retailers a taste of hot new products at a show that is close to home,” she says, “and producers can raise awareness of their products to a wide range of retailers, which gives them a platform and the chance to get some great feedback. We also try to make it a fun experience with a daily giveaway. This year retailers have the chance to win an iPad mini each day of the show.” More information about the show is available by calling 800.995.6887 or visit www.McClainsWholesale.com.
