The BC Foodservice Expo is Western Canada’s largest hospitality tradeshow. This year, the Expo took place on January 29th and 30th at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
The BSI team was especially happy to see the strong emphasis put on sustainability by the foodservice industry. The presence of the sustainable foodservice community was prominent throughout the two-day event with exhibitors showcasing a variety of sustainable innovations. Sustainability was also popular with the Expo visitors who were hungry for more information on our compostable foodservice ware product line. It feels like the industry is finally at the stage where most people are aware of biodegradable products and are increasingly seeking out better alternatives for their disposable foodservice ware needs.
At this stage of heightened awareness for compostable products, we noticed that both businesses and culinary professionals were very impressed with our sustainable vision and standards. We had some great conversations with industry buyers and competitors alike, who were all striving to make the foodservice industry more sustainable.
Overall, BSI definitely stood out from the 299 other booths exhibiting at the Expo and we were proud to receive a Special Recognition Award for outstanding booth design, concept and interactivity by the Tradeshow Organizers and Celebrity Chef David Adjey.
We had two successful days at the 2012 BC Foodservice Expo filled with great connections, engaging information, and positive conversations.
