The 2022 edition presents a new format which offers visitors a more complete experience

A renewed format

Free From Food & Health Ingredients’ program evolved in past editions (2015, 2017 and 2019). Therefore, in addition to having a multitude of activities, the 2022 edition presents a new format which offers high-caliber visitors a more complete experience.

Conference schedule

All those attending the fair will have free access to the lectures and conferences given by experts. The new edition will present an agenda full of keynote talks and seminars on topics: retail, vegan and plant-based product talks and also sustainable packaging. These conferences will be held twice a day during the event.

Networking & International Matchmaking

Networking meetings and personalized roundtables will also be present during the event. Within the framework of the ‘Meet the expert’ activities, professionals will be able to organise personalized sessions with the aim of discussing the main sector’s issues. The roundtables will have a capacity for five guests and will be organized by leading figures in the sector. An appointment will be required.

B2B meetings among professionals and potential international partners are one of the most anticipated activities. Therefore, the Enterprise Europe Network will organize meetings between commercial, strategic and technological partners in the sector.
