Free From Food & Health Ingredients will be back to Bracelona
“Awareness and perceptions for free-from and functional foods are positively growing, reflecting in an increase in their demand. These foods encompass ever-growing dietary requirements and have shown to be powerful performers within numerous retail categories – from snacking, ready meals and out-of-home, to frozen, confectionery, and everyday grocery essentials”, says Ronald Holman, director of Free From Food & Health Ingredients.
Food safety and awareness of health and environmental benefits are taking the food industry by storm. The Free From category encompasses a growing range of dietary needs, while responding to the increasing demand for healthy, nutritious and socially and environmentally responsible products. Free From Food & Health Ingredients Expo is a key venue for companies’ strategy to respond to today’s dietary needs, lifestyles and worldwide challenges.
Latest innovations and market predictions
With a program focused on fostering and strengthening professional relationships, the ninth edition of this international event, organized by Expo Business Communications, will unveil the latest innovations and market predictions in organic, vegan, lactose-free, gluten-free, meat-free and allergen-free food products and supplements. At the same time, it will provide valuable market insights relevant to each of the five exhibition segments. “The segments of our show are interconnected due to our exhibitors as food manufacturers and brand owners with their strategy to develop products that merge all the categories”, adds Holman.
A revamped program focused on professional relationships
Free From Food & Health Ingredients is more than a trade show. It is an opportunity to network, gain knowledge and do business. Is the key place to connect the most innovative, healthy and environmentally conscious food and packaging products and brands with health and food professionals, retailers, HORECA and hospitality buyers. And Barcelona stands out as a perfect place for this purpose.

“We have impressive and essential partners supporting the consumption and trade of products in our categories in Spain”, claims Holman. “The Free From umbrella does offer added value through each step in the chain of production from farm to fork. These products also add value to the business model for each company involved in this healthy food sector, as consumers are willing to pay more for this responsibility and nourishing products”, adds the director of the event.
Over two days, Fira de Barcelona will host a renewed edition of the Free From Food & Health Ingredients Expo, in which producers, brand owners, researchers, food professionals, buyers and dietitians will be able to discover and take advantage of new trends and opportunities in this growing sector. So that, the organisation expects to bring together up to 8,500 visitors and 350 producers, manufacturers and key figures from the international industry during the event.
“We expect to please our high-caliber visitors with the active presence of hundreds of pioneering international brands and industry experts during the packed two-days conference schedule”, Holman points out. All those attending the fair will have free access to the lectures and conferences given by experts, as well as be able to participate in various networking and matchmaking activities and personalized round tables.
