This year’s Food ingredients Europe & Natural ingredients, Europe’s leading trade show for food and beverage ingredients, will reflect the “green” consumer trend even stronger than before. As more and more companies focus on natural ingredients and organic provenance, exhibition organizer Informa Markets has more than doubled the size of the event’s Organic Pavilion. In addition, the natural ingredients zone has grown by more than 50 percent. Fi Europe & Ni 2019 will take place from 3 to 5 December in Paris.
Currently, around 100 companies from all over the world have secured their spot for Fi Europe & Ni natural ingredients zone – including the agar specialist Setexam (Morocco), natural vanilla expert Eurovanille (France), the flavour house Enrico Giotti (Italy) and plant ingredients manufacturer Peruvian Nature (Peru). Trade visitors looking for natural alternatives will find what they are looking for both in this specialized area – and beyond. The Organic Pavilion, with over 50 exhibitors already confirmed such as oleoresins and extracts producer Jean Gazignaire (France), import/export trader DO-IT (Netherlands) and natural fibre specialist Interfiber (Poland), offers an excellent overview of the immense diversity of organic quality alternatives that now exist.
In addition, Fi Europe & Ni will provide an extensive range of information and education opportunities on a variety of natural and organic topics. For instance, within the free-to-access Organic Spotlight trade visitors can gain insights into the latest trends in the organic sector, as well as regulatory issues and market analyses. The “Plant-based Experience” will focus on plant alternatives in particular: together with NGO ProVeg International, an extensive programme featuring live cooking events, lectures and innovation tours has been created. Meanwhile, the Fi Conference will focus on innovative concepts for clean labels, amongst other key areas.
