NASFT - San Francisco Fords Gourmet Foods
Ford's Gourmet Foods is proud to be back in San Francisco and to once again be a part of the NASFT's Winter Fancy Foods Show.  Please come visit us at the show in booth 1446.

For many years we have come to this show with new lines and new flavors of some proven favorites, evidence of our continued commitment to product development.  While we don't have anything new from a product standpoint other than new sizes and new labels to share, we certainly have had our share of good news in 2008.

Our focus for 2008 was on continuing to build relationships with our long standing customers as well beginning a few new ones.  We're proud to say that Ford's Gourmet Foods, anchored by the Bone Suckin' Sauce line, can now be found in more than 42 countries around the world. 

Our Bone Suckin' Sauces remain the only barbecue sauces rated #1 by Newsweek, Food & Wine, House and Garden, Restaurant UK and A+ Health Magazine.  We were recognized for our efforts to provide Gluten Free products by Columbia University's Celiac Disease Center, one of the leading research centers in the field.  We were honored with the first ever North Carolina Exporter of the Year award and during the ceremony, we were told it was unheard of a company exporting barbecue sauce and peanuts outside NC or the USA.  We were also named one of the Top 20 Small and Mid-sized Market Players by the Consumer Products Guide.

We are grateful for the success and accolades that our products have received.  But we also realize we have a responsibility to give back to the trade that has given us so much.  That includes becoming advocates for businesses like ours, working to protect the ability of those like us to continue to be successful in the United States and abroad. 

In 2008, we became charter members of an export advisory council for a division of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture.  In May, because of our work promoting export, we were one of two NC companies invited to the White House to hear The President's speech to honor World Trade Week.  In October we exhibited to 180,000 food buyers at Sial France helping represent The USA and SUSTA, The Southern United States Trade Association.  

In addition, all members of MAP, Market Access Program and Foreign Market Development Program benefited in this year's budget from Patrick's testimony in front of the United States Congress in 2007.  These programs are designed to assist U.S. producers, exporters, and trade organizations in developing, maintaining, and expanding export activities in global markets.

The most important thing we wanted to share with you is that behind all of this news, you will still find a fourth generation, Raleigh, North Carolina-based family business and an outstanding team dedicated to creating some of the world's greatest tasting, all natural foods.  From the internationally acclaimed line of Bone Suckin' Sauces, Wine Nuts and Fire Dancer Jalapeno Peanuts, to the new Earth Family Organics and Naturals and now, A'Lese Tois chocolates, Ford's Gourmet Foods is known to make and/or distribute the best.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership.  We look forward to spending time with you at this year's show.
