Fig Food Named a Finalist in the NEXT Accelerator Natural Products Pitch-Slam Competition

Winners to be Announced at
Natural Products Expo East

New York, NY, September 17, 2014 – Fig Food Company announced today that it will compete as a finalist in the NEXT Accelerator Natural Products Pitch-Slam competition, according to Fig Food founder Joel Henry.

Pitch-Slam is a fun, fast-paced event that lets entrepreneurs pitch their natural product ideas to a panel of four leading natural products investors and branding experts and receive immediate feedback on their businesses.

Fig Food is one of three finalists that will participate today in the Pitch-Slam competition at Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore, MD.

“I am hoping ‘slam’ refers to the pace, not the competition!” Henry said. “And I appreciate New Hope actively engaging and giving visibility to mission-driven food companies looking to positively affect the food we eat. I also look forward to learning from my colleagues both in the competition and the NEXT Accelerator Training Camp that precedes it.”
