Trailhead, a local nonprofit supporting entrepreneurs, innovators, and business people, is teaming up with Albertsons this year for the third annual Trailmix Pitch Competition. 

The event is held to showcase and create awareness for new and innovative food product companies in Idaho and the Northwest. 

Last year, the Idaho Statesman reported Orchestra Provisions, a Boise company that makes spice blends out of dried crickets, won the 2019 competition and beat 49 other competitors. The 2018 winner was Snacktivist Foods.
