Top 5 Organic Products from the 2013 Fancy Food Show in NYC

Last week, I attended the 2013 Fancy Food Show in NYC, North America’s largest specialty food and beverage event. With 180,000 products from 2,400 vendors, there was a tremendous amount to see.

Here are my Top 5 Organic Products from the 2013 Fancy Food Show, and look for them at a supermarket near you sometime this year.



Maqui berry powder is starting to gain significant traction in the marketplace because of its very high level of antioxidants.

Seeking to capitalize on the growing interest of this powerful berry from South America, a Chilean company called Bberri has introduced an organic blueberry-maqui berry juice, a product that I have never seen before.

Offering a very smooth and refreshing taste, this juice contains no added sugar and is from made nothing but blueberries and maqui berries.



Some of the best organic products that I have ever tasted come from Italy because the soil there is so rich and fertile.

Maybe that is why the olive oil from Il Molino completely blew me away. It was fresh, aromatic, and truly intoxicating.

However, I am hardly the only one impressed by Il Molino. The company has won a slew of awards including Gold Award Winner at the 2013 New York International Olive Oil Competition.



If you’re looking for a gluten-free cracker with great crunch and excellent flavor, you should keep an eye out for the organic chestnut crispbread by Le Pain des Fleurs.

Made made with nothing more than organic rice flour, organic chestnut flour (30%), and sea salt, this product is a winner.

Produced in France, this crispbread’s non-GMO version is currently available via Amazon.



For the legion of die-hard fans of Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss, I have good news for you.

The new Salted Caramel & Chocolate is by far their best flavor yet. And it’s not even close.

Go beg the buyer at your local organic market to start carrying it. I’ll be speaking to mine tomorrow.



Brought to you by the same people who produce the fantastic Artisana nut butters, Ek Chok chocolate with vanilla is sure to capture a lot of attention.

The super-pure cacao from Venezuela and the delicious infusion of vanilla, a spice that I love, give it great taste. Additionally, the texture is very unique. It is a cross between a chocolate spread and a chocolate bar. A+ for innovation.

  4. Mmmm,,, anything salted caramel is the best in my book. I’m not a huge fan of coconut ice cream–I think the coconut flavor can be tasted. But I’m ready to try this flavor. Excited!
