With ever-changing and more complex consumer trends, say the organisers of Fi Europe, greater need for safer and healthier food and beverages and higher demands to use purely natural ingredients, today’s food and beverage professionals need greater access to innovative reformulation solutions, new, tastier and better quality ingredients and greater industry thought-leadership.
For more than 25 years Fi Europe & Ni has provided the world with the leading food and beverage ingredients sourcing platform, the organisers note, and in 2015 it will take place in Paris from 1-3 December 2015. In fact, they say, over 25% of all annual ingredient procurement budgets for food and beverage manufactures are influenced by a visit to Fi Europe & Ni making Fi Europe & Ni one of the most influential and important three day event for the industry.
Fi Europe & Ni is returning to Paris for a number of reasons. France has the second-largest economy in Europe, in nominal figures, and is the third-largest food market on the continent, behind Germany and the UK. In addition, France is home to 13,500 food and beverage businesses, which generate more than €147 billion in annual revenue and Paris’ strategic geographic positioning only enhances global food and beverage trade. It is therefore the perfect location to bring the food and beverage industry together.
Over 1,400 ingredient suppliers have already been confirmed to exhibit at Fi Europe & Ni, including Roquette, Cargill, Brenntag, ADM, FrieslandCampina, DSM, Naturex, and many more. Leading European food and beverage manufacturers have also already confirmed their attendance including Lactalis and Barry Callebaut.
“Fi Europe is a truly global meeting place for professionals – in 2015 we expect over 27,000 attendees, all of who will be looking to make connections with new business partners and suppliers, as well as learn about the latest innovations shaping their industry. Fi Europe has proven to be the most successful platform for companies who want to successfully position themselves in the vibrant and ever-growing food and beverage market,” said Brand Director, Richard Joyce, who is anticipating the best and biggest show to date.
Along with ingredient suppliers, Fi Europe 2015 will also offer thought-leadership and new ingredient innovations showcases.
This year will see the return of the New Product Zone which displays the latest products and innovations and gives an opportunity to find out what is predicted in the future. The Innovation Tours will provide insight on clean labelling, sugar and salt reduction solution providers. The Global Market Forum will provide workshops and educational seminars surrounding key industry topics, conducted by companies like EAS, Euromonitor, NVC, Leatherhead and Innova Market Insights. The Innovation and Ingredients Hub will allow exhibitors to present the latest innovations, cutting edge technology and product opportunities. The Food ingredients Excellence Awards are presented, recognising the leading ingredient manufacturers and their latest innovations. The event is co-located with the Food ingredients Europe Conference, which covers issues currently faced by the food ingredients industry and will, say the organisers, provide crucial insights into leading scientific innovations, winning marketing strategies and explore the hottest ingredients trends driving new product development and consumer spending in the F&B industry.
