IDDBA Dairy-Deli-Bake 2013

It may have been hot and thunder-storming outside, but inside the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, the cheese counter, deli department and in-store bakery were enjoying each other’s company. What else could it have been other than the IDDBA’s Dairy-Deli-Bake Seminar and Expo.

Three days was not enough to check out all the fresh food innovations brought to market, but we tried. Here are a few photos of the things GHQ saw and the people we met.
