Food Ingredients Europe: where ingredients and technology meet
The interplay between packing and processing will be under the spotlight at the at the Food Ingredients Europe (FiE) and Natural Ingredients (Ni) show, which takes place in Frankfurt later this month (November 28–30).

Through the Expo FoodTec Pavilion and its new Content Hub, this year’s FiE will offer a wide range of packaging, machinery, processing and consultancy services.

With 1,000m sq dedicated to the pavilion and more than 100 suppliers in attendance, Expo FoodTec will provide insights into the most interesting technologies around.

Located in hall 8, the Expo FoodTec Pavilion will be aimed at management and experts in packing and purchasing, laboratory services, quality control, and research and development. Show organiser UBM claims it offers a novel opportunity to make personal contact with future clients.

First ever information centre

For the first time ever, an information centre at the heart of the Expo FoodTec Pavilion will summarise innovations, interesting start-ups and expert views.

The Expo FoodTec Content Hub will include free-to-attend presentations, speeches and information videos as well as samples of promising new finished products.

On November 28, Blue-tec founder Lex van Dijk will talk through his sustainable approach to energy efficient osmosis processing technology.

Another highlight is a session on food fraud by Marjan de Bock Smit, founder of SIM (Supply chain Information Management) on November 29.

The same day, Rob Kooikmans, co-founder of & Food Safety Experts, will provide a hands-on explanation of how to make ingredients and food manufacturing spaces fit for the future.

‘So many interesting involvements’

“FiE and Ni is and always will be an ingredients show, but there are so many interesting involvements between ingredients and the various aspects of FoodTec that we feel a strong commitment to present these to our visitors,”​ says Richard Joyce, brand director of FiE and Ni.

“In future, we would like to further develop this zone within the show, The Content Hub is a first step – there is so much to talk about.”

To underline the importance of the Expo FoodTec zone, a special award category within the Fi Europe Innovation Awards is dedicated to innovative FoodTec products or concepts.
