This year's IFT show was very different because of the coronavirus pandemic: it was virtual-only, and was renamed SHIFT20. All events took place online, from July 12-15.

Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery was able to attend a few virtual meetings, and hear about new trends, products, ingredients, equipment, and more.

Check out the slideshow above to see pictures from various companies, as well as a description of what they showcased at the convention.

IFT21 is scheduled for Sunday, July 18 through Wednesday, July 21, at McCormick Place, Chicago.
