  What ever happend to The World of Food? It was to have been one of the Fair's biggest pavilions. It became one of the Fair's biggest flops. The answer comes direct from the files of the New York World's Fair 1964/1965 Corporation, Manuscripts and Archives Division of the New York Public Library, where Philip Ras has found the answers for us at last!

The World of Food Pavilion was to have housed exhibits relating to nutrition and the food industry. The pavilion was started but never completed.

Ground was broken for the pavilion in early 1963. Exhibitors in the pavilion were to include Lipton Tea, Hershey Chocolate, Adolph's Inc., Pepsi-Cola and Roman Products.


Webmaster's note... The World of Food Pavilion is a World's Fair mystery. Like The American Indian Exposition, its footprint often appears on maps of the Fair right up to opening day. The pavilion, however, was never built and the lot remained empty throughout the run of the Fair.
