The NAFEM Show made the foodservice tabletop innovations easy to find at the WHAT’S HOT! WHAT’S COOL!® new product gallery. This high-traffic area of the show floor is visited by nearly 80% of attendees historically and our impression was that trend was no different in 2013.
Hot tabletop products at The NAFEM Show were:

Steelite's new CRAFT Collection is inspired by hand-crafted, simple county wares made by generations of potters over hundreds of years.
