The FABREO Expo is the NEXT
The FABREO Expo is the NEXT STEP after the home kitchen, the commercial kitchen and the farmers market. It provides the education, suppliers, service providers, trade show experience and, most important, the brokers, distributors, retailers and exporters that START-UP food and beverage entrepreneurs absolutely, without-a-doubt, need to expand regionally, nationally and internationally.
