Paterson, New Jersey – March 3, 2020 –The International Restaurant & Food Service Show of New York, also known as the NY Restaurant Show, is kicking off this weekend and Kontos Foods, Inc., a U.S.-based manufacturer and distributor of traditional artisan breads and Mediterranean specialty foods, will be there. The show is being held March 8-10 at the Javits Center in New York. Kontos will be exhibiting at Booth #1767.

Kontos Foods’ flatbreads, more 60+ varieties, will be the star attraction, along with its Fillo Dough and Baklava pastries. It will also be showing off popular brands such as Kontos Pocket-Less Pita®, Greek Lifestyle Flatbread®, Gyro breads, grilled Panini breads, All-Natural, French-Style Crepes, and other ethnic flatbreads. Fillo dough, which comes in varying thicknesses, as well as Kataifi dough, will also be available for viewing. Also available will be its Light (Thin) Flatbread in a Traditional White variety. Perfect for a healthy lifestyle, this versatile flatbread is super thin for a wholesome traditional flavor without overwhelming your sandwich topping or fillings. It contains 40 percent fewer calories than traditional Kontos flatbread, is 100 percent vegan, and contains no cholesterol or trans fats. Also, perfect for soups and salads are Toasted Tidbits™, made from sliced Kontos’ signature GYRO Bread, toasted into delicious Tidbits™.

Kontos Foods’ flatbreads represent a melting pot, appealing to the hundreds of different restaurants and food service establishments available in the greater New York area.  They include:

Gyro Bread – This bread is ‘pre-oiled’ for easier handling and requires a minimal amount of heating to become extremely flexible.  Ideal for traditional souvlaki/kabobs and gyros.

Grilled Panini Bread – This oval bread is ‘pre-grilled’ for convenience; requires a minimal amount of heating to become extremely flexible.  Ideal for Panini sandwiches and bruschetta. 

Massala Nan – A blend of fresh chopped hot chili and onions with oriental spices create this wonderfully flavorful oval flatbread.

Lavash – The perfect ‘roll-up’ flatbread!  This soft and pliable 9 by 11-inch rectangular flatbread rolls in both directions.  Because it is yeast based, it will absorb moisture and not fall apart.  May also be used to make ‘pinwheels’ for appetizers.

Greek Lifestyle Flatbread – A hand-stretched flatbread with 2x protein, 1/2 carbohydrates, and less sugar and calories than other flatbreads; ideal for sandwiches and appetizers. 9 and 11-Inch Traditional and Savory Crepes – These crepes have a delicate, contemporary flavor and texture to complement a variety of fillings; they also make a delicious low-cal substitute for a traditional wrap.

The International Restaurant & Foodservice Show, also known as the NYS Restaurant Association Show, features more than 400 vendors catering to the restaurant and foodservice industry. “Our flatbread lineup is perfect for the audience attending this show because it’s so international in scope,” said Steve Kontos, president and owner of Kontos Foods. “Our products are also baked to be ideal in a food service or restaurant. They freeze beautifully; and taste freshly baked upon reheating.” 

Kontos sells its products to retailers and foodservice establishments across North America and several other countries. All of its flatbreads are made in the U.S.A.
