Hi Europe & Ni records healthy growth in anniversary year

Full aisles, well-attended booths: the Hi Europe & Ni trade show, which recently took place in Frankfurt/Germany, registered a positive response among exhibitors and trade visitors. More than 9000 interested parties from almost 100 nations informed themselves at a record number of over 550 exhibitors. Amongst them were 150 new exhibitors, showcasing and presenting at Europeʼs most important health ingredient trade show. The strongest increase in exhibitors was in the natural and organic pavilion, which has grown by more than 60 %.
The tenth edition of Hi Europe & Ni delivered the key ingredient that makes it unique for exhibitors and trade visitors alike: the critical link between food, health, dietary supplements and functional foods. The fair gave the appropriate answers to the current nutritional trends. The market for vegan, vegetarian or flexitarian diets is growing steadily, as is the demand for authentic foods and free-from products. Accordingly, this yearʼs trend topics included natural functionality and sports nutrition, reduction and reformulation as well as personalization.
Next year, Fi Europe & Ni will open its doors from 3 to 5 December in the Parc des Expositions Villepinte in Paris, France. The following year, Hi Europe & Ni will start in Frankfurt on 1 December 2020.
