NEW YORK (June 17, 2015) – The specialty food industry is flourishing. Sales are at a record high of $109 billion and account for nearly 15 percent of all U.S. retail food sales. It is an industry that hardly existed 50 years ago. Today's impressive performance is the result of the hard work and foresight of industry pioneers who decades ago saw an opportunity to elevate the culture of food in the U.S. and stepped in to make it happen.
