ANNOUNCEMENT – NEW RETAIL TRADING PLATFORM FOR ASIA!
The world of Free From Food Asia covering Free From, Vegan, Functional, Organic, Health and Food Ingredients. All under one roof.
Press release, February 19, 2020
Mintel research has revealed that Free From is becoming more and more important in Asia, given the high level of lactose and dairy intolerance among Asian consumers. Veganism is on the rise and is one of the major trends in big Asian and Middle East cities with millions and millions of people visiting food service outlets and ordering online catering every day. Furthermore, recent numbers (Euromonitor) indicate that 31% of the total trade is for free from, organic or vegan food products.
Free From Food Asia will be an annual exhibition and conference platform and this year, will be held from March 10-12, 2021 at IMPACT, Bangkok, Thailand by EBCEXPO from the Netherlands and VNU Asia Pacific from Thailand. The show will be co-located with VIV Asia, which recently announced the selection of IMPACT as their new home base.
Free From Food Expo has been successfully held since 2013 as a travelling trade show in many European cities, including Freiburg, Brussels, Barcelona, and Stockholm and will be held in Amsterdam and Barcelona in 2020 and 2021, respectively.
“The background of the brand name “Free From Food” comes from the idea that here, all foods are on display that are for example, free from diary, free from genetically modified ingredients, free from gluten etc. – this is one of the biggest trends in the global food sector today.” said Ronald Holman, Exhibition Director, EBCEXPO
“People’s concern for health, environmental protection and safety has resulted in the rapid development of the Free From and organic markets in Asia and the Middle East. Suppliers need to focus on the Free From and Vegan markets at the Expo to do better business in Asia. Free From Food Asia brings together Free From, Vegan and Healthy food producers to better serve and meet their potential customers, which is not possible at other more general food fairs.” Ronald added.
“The initiatives of Free From Food Asia result from the long-time partnership and trust between EBCEXPO and Jaarbeurs – the mother company of VNU in the Netherlands.” Heiko M.Stutzinger, Managing Director of VNU Asia Pacific revealed.
“VNU runs many trade fairs and conferences worldwide to fulfil the needs of the agricultural and livestock businesses. Our flagship VIV Asia in Bangkok reflects the demands of the industry from Feed to Food in Asia. and the new show Free From Food Asia will be a vital strategic investment, establishing a lasting footprint in the Agri-Food value chain to link our portfolio with food and retail businesses. This expo is the best place to source the most trendy and healthy food products that every global buyer is looking for” said Heiko.
Free From Food Asia will run for 3 days from March 10 to 12, 2021 at IMPACT, Thailand and will bring together purchase decision makers from distribution, trade, retail, hotel and food services in a single space as well as other operators in the ASEAN and Middle East food and drink chain.
Taking part in the show will enable you to acquire a market share, strengthen your brand image, make business contacts in the Free From Asian markets and capture new customers.
