Agropur Converges at the Superbowl of Pizza - Vegas Celebration of pizza pies!
US Operations had a successful year at the world’s largest Pizza Industry tradeshow. Teams from both cheese and ingredient operations had a great exprience.
Cheese Operations had a large booth display in the central area of the show floor. Their consistent booth traffic allowed them to showcase three variations of pizza cheese at the show. They also distributed samples of their award-winning feta cheese which is produced in the Weyauwega, WI plant.
Agropur Ingredients participates in the show on behalf of their PZ™ line of ingredients. This includes traditional PZ-44® and line extensions PZ-42™ and PZ-55™. As the Official Dough Conditioner of the World Pizza Champions – Agropur branding is incorporated in a variety of ways throughout the event. Some activities included: Information and sample distribution, product plugs throughout the World Pizza Games, judging for the famous Acrobatics competition and incorporation into all the competition dough.
The event was featured on a popular US news and entertainment show, Good Morning America. The two young pizza tossing talents are the sons of a fellow judge and pizzeria operations owner, Carmine Testa. He gave them our promo PZ-44® pizza shades as a gift when they returned – they wore them with pride! Tony Gemignani was interviewed live on the Wednesday airing. In addition to being an 11 Time World Pizza Champion, Chef, Owner, Author and Master Instructor, Tony is a proud rep of PZ-44®.
