Food and beverage professionals are invited to step into a ‘microcosm’ of the ingredients world at this year’s Fi Europe event. With 135 countries represented, over 25,000 visitors and 1200 exhibitors are expected to come together under one roof.
This year’s event blends in-person and digital interactions through the Fi Europe event platform, which will be open online and pre- and post-show, extending the possibilities for exhibitors and visitors to discover new business opportunities, connect with the right people and take inspiration from the latest industry trends and innovations. It also enables attendees to maximise their time in Frankfurt from 28-30 November.
In the exhibition hall, attendees can access a range of products spanning the entire food and beverage supply chain. High profile names such as Cargill, ABF Ingredients, Prinova, Brenntag and Lesaffre.
The Fi Europe Conference (28-29 November) and Future of Nutrition Summit (27 November) will provide exclusive content. It is focused on addressing current challenges and identifying immediate opportunities in the food and beverage industry. The speaker line-up includes Kalina Doykova, Senior Research Analyst at Euromonitor International and Cyrille Filott, Global Strategist at Rabobank.
The Future of Nutrition Summit offers a deep dive into disruptive technologies and solutions that have the potential to reshape the industry. Delegates will hear from presenters such as Floor Buitelaar, Managing Partner at Bright Green Partners; Mario Ubiali, Founder and CEO of Thimus0 and Christine Gould, Founder and CEO of Thought For Food.
The growing importance of sustainability as an industry challenge will be reflected in the event highlighting issues such as sustainable sourcing, labels and transparency, regulatory compliance, ESG, gender equity and more.
In addition to several informal and impromptu interactions, there will be several organised networking opportunities. Data-driven matchmaking offers a scientific approach to making connections, and female professionals can look forward to inspiring others and being inspired at the popular Women’s Networking Breakfast.
“This year’s Fi Europe includes all the ingredients that food and beverage tastemakers need to innovate and grow their businesses, from expert content sessions to targeted networking opportunities and a show floor brimming with ideas,” commented Yannick Verry, Brand Manager, Food Ingredients Europe and Americas. “I am very excited about the collective transformational power of all of these elements and cannot wait to see what creativity and connections ensue from this melting pot of talent.”
