Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo


The Western Foodservice and Hospitality Expo is all about industry professionals learning about the latest trends and products.  Foodservice professionals are encouraged to come learn about the gluten-free diet, which is not a trend for the people living with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity ('gluten sensitivity'), but the only treatment currently available for these conditions.  NFCA GREAT Kitchens Affiliate Karen Kurokawa will present a session about gluten-free foodservice and safety protocols for serving customers with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.

When: Sunday, August 18, 2013 to Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Where: Los Angeles Convention Center
              1201 S. Figueroa St.
              Los Angeles, CA 90015

Time: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Sunday and Monday) and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Tuesday)
