Pork producers are flocking to Des Moines this week for the annual World Pork Expo.

The event is expected to bring in over 20,000 visitors from 40 countries.

This year visitors to the fairgrounds can expect some new, tasty treats. Those who stop by the hospitality tent will be able to sample bacon inspired items ranging from bacon donuts, to bacon-sausage breakfast burritos, to popcorn with bacon season salt.

Of course, there is more to the expo than just food tasting, there are also seminars for producers to display ways to better their business and a trade show with the latest technology.

The expo runs through Friday.
