About the festival

The Canadian Flavors [Virtual] Food Festival is 2 days of direct connections with Canadian food, beverage, and ingredient companies ready to expand their international reach.







Attendees are supermarket, specialty retail, c-store, food service, food distribution, food manufacturing, and alcohol importers, distributors, and retailers looking to find new products from innovative brands that come from a country with global reputation as a supplier of safe and high-quality products. Suppliers available for meetings during the Festival are representatives of the world class agri-food, beverage, and seafood sectors throughout Canada.

Over 2 days, you will be able to choose the suppliers and sessions that are relevant to you — and, don’t say we told you, but you can ignore the rest. As you build your Festival, you will receive confirmation emails with Zoom links that will let you connect the day of the program.

Besides being a virtual program that is tailored to your schedule, you will have the option to receive a customized sample kit containing just the products you’re interested in. And did we mention there is no cost to participate?
