2014 Grocery Showcase West Vancouver Retailer Products

 

2014 Grocery Showcase West was just over the weekend of April 6th and 7th at the Vancouver Convention Centre. As this event not open to the public, we were extremely excited to get the behind the scenes action on all the new flavors coming to a Grocery or Supermarket near you. For those unfamiliar with Grocery Showcase, it is where Brands and Exhibitors look to better position themselves in the market place as well as to expand in Western Canada. Similar to EAT! Vancouver and Canadian Health Food Association #CHFAwest exhibitions, the Grocery Showcase is an opportunity to see the latest innovations and hottest trends – an absolute must see area for any grocery professional! 

 

Various sales marketing and retail merchandising solutions company like Acosta will feature their stellar brands and allow for sample of crowd favorites and new flavors. And then there is also Mondelez International that brings you Chips Ahoy! Triscuit, Halsls and Cadbury.  Some items have not even hit the shelves yet!

Soda Stream: makes water less boring with portable carbonation. I was really excited when I Samsung SodaStream Refrigerator ($3,900). This is the first fridge with a carbonated water option – Soda Stream Tech. If replacing a new fridge unit isn’t in the budget, perhaps consider a standalone option complete with various flavors such as cola,  ocean spray, and other natural fruit flavors. I wasn’t very fond of the heavy aspartame in the cola. But a homemade Pellegrino sounds delicious!
