The Food Expo Experience

The Largest Global Food Science and Innovation Expo

Engage your senses with the sights and sounds of a busy marketplace filled with suppliers who are ready to showcase the latest global ingredients, trends, technologies, solutions, and new products.

It’s here where you’ll find the answers to the problems you are trying to solve while gaining relevant knowledge from colleagues and suppliers who are vested in helping you to grow and sustain your business.

We would like to extend a special welcome to our FIRST Time Exhibitors. Spread out across our expo floor, the annual event is a launching pad for many new and emerging businesses. From logistics, natural ingredients, food and feed additives, plant-based solutions, emulsifiers, aromatic blends, fermentation technologies and more, there’s much to see and experience in the way of brand-new products and services.
